Humans can be down right scary and more than a little evil.
This happened 99 years ago; humans didn't learn a damn thing. Look at what is happening TODAY; we are killing Mother Earth and all beings who live here!

10-12 wood pigeons often visit my deck and they are wonderful with their mighty flapping wings. I do believe they purposefully enjoy teasing and putting on a show for my cats...often flying and hovering right in front of the windows. It drives the cats crazy. The pigeons love it!
