“rats with wings” or extraordinary birds?

anna dove,* an advocate for pigeons and other birds in manhattan – founder & president of the new york bird club – has raised an uproar over the city’s plans to fine pigeon-feeders in new york.

 the city wants to decrease the population of what they consider useless, pesky creatures.

what is the group’s plan to fight the city & save the pigeons, you ask? post flyers & have someone walk around in a pigeon costume.

that’s one way to sway the public & GAIN THE CITY’S RESPECT. or not.
