Amid the pressure of great events, a general principle gives no help.

Oh, the humble Columbidae!

Pigeons and doves people. Pigeons and doves.

Here is a feral Rock Pigeon photographed right outside my office here in Salamanca. You may have seen one yourself. Some people don't like pigeons. Some people don't like pigeons very much at all.

I am not fussed either way. They're okay in a pie, but not the feral ones.

I had an uncle one time who used to breed pigeons for the restaurant trade. Dressed, they looked like a small chicken. Known as squab.

That's a fine speckled necktie he's wearing.

Bloody pigeons!

Kris, only if you hit them with a shotgun, or a car.
