Pretty Pigeon Pageant

This attractive pigeon was a contestant at the National Pigeon Show, where the National Pigeon Association proved that the creatures are more than rats with wings. I wonder how many hours she spent curling her feathers. Probably a lot. Anyhow, my point being, pigeons have every right to get glammed up and strut their stuff. It seems like a great way for a pigeon to build self-esteem while developing the grace and poise that will take her far in life. I totally support pigeon pageants as long as they are not full glitz. A pigeon with a flipper and a spray tan? That’s just taking it too far. [The Gothamist]
