The morning bread dump in Tompkins Square Park

People continue to leave/dump bread for the pigeons (and rats and whatever other critters) on a daily basis in Tompkins Square Park. The Do Not Feed the Pigeons signs haven't been effective.

Anyway, the bread bounty this morning was the most that we've seen in a really long time...

A new reminder not to feed the pigeons in Tompkins Square Park

On Sunday, a Park worker put up new "Do Not Feed the Pigeons" signs. (Not directed toward anyone in particular) ... Why? Because if you feed a pigeon, you breed a rat...

And maybe there are a few more rats in Tompkins Square Park here toward the end of the summer? (Difficult to say!) These are a few shots of the critters last week via Bobby Williams... (Not quite the Summer of the Ratstravaganza ...)

In any event, the new signs haven't been too effective — someone dumped piles of bread right by one sign along Avenue A yesterday morning...

Elusive pigeon lady captured on film, sort of

We've discussed the elusive pigeon lady hereabouts before... she lays down huge bags of bread crumbs on Avenue A near Ninth Street for the rats pigeons. Begin the Pigeocalypse!

Anyway, a reader has sent along this photo moments after one of her the pigeon lady's morning dumps, so to speak...

The bread crumb trail is getting hotter...

The Pigeon Lady proving more elusive than originally thought!

A reader snapped this shot on Avenue A near Ninth Street earlier today... just missing the notorious Pigeon Lady, though in time for the aftermath...
