Flying Rats

Hello world,

'Flying rats' is a term often used for pigeons. Pigeons are everywhere, all over the world, countries, continents. Some say they are the plague of all cities. I say they are fascinating. 

If you spend just a few minutes observing pigeons, a sense of appreciation comes over you. This species managed to spread over countries, is very well adapted and is so used to people in cities that  some pigeons don't even get out of your way as you approach them. Personally I also love the way they walk. Bobbing their head with every step. Enjoy some shots of these strange animals!


Barcelona pigeons: 


Each pigeon fitted itself perfectly in the little nooks of this historic building. Simply fantastic positioning.



These two photos were taken in Park G├╝ell, Barcelona. At the top of a hill, these pigeons were overlooking the whole of Barcelona. 


Caught in the action. As I was trying to take a picture of the cathedral in the background, this little fellow flew into my frame. 


London pigeons: 


(All photos were taken with an iPhone 4s)

All in all, there is a lot more to these birds than just 'flying rats'. 

Till later world.
