Re: The pigeon Curse

when i had the sheep farm, my next door neighbor's son raised pigeons. he has a large treehouse-type cote from which the pigeons were free to come and go.

this neighbor's other next door neighbor was a state wildlife ranger. once he brought home a redtail hawk with a broken wing and nursed it back to health.

once the hawk could fly again, it cleaned out the pigeons in about a week.

This I stole from somebody's signature on another list:

"God devised pigeons as a means of punishment for man. Probably after
the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrha he wanted to make sure that people
would never again feel comfortable enough in a city to repeat the sins
committed there, and he created the pigeons as a means to make the city
dwellers' lives more miserable, as a constant reminder of their past sins."
