Anton's pigeons out for a stroll above Avenue A

This afternoon via Michael Sean Edwards ... who captured a familiar and welcome sight along here near East 10th Street — Anton van Dalen's birds...

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...

Hawk vs. pigeon today in Tompkins Square Park

The pigeon eventually escaped... Later, though, the hawk dined on an already-dead pigeon... Photos by Bobby Williams... not sure if it was the same pigeon...

Dead pigeon on East Sixth Street AC unit still dead

So, we did that post back in February titled "How long before this pigeon decomposes?"


Well, Suz on Sixth, who took the photo, has an update for us.

I thought that you may be interested to know that the dead pigeon is a) still dead, b) still outside of my window, and c) not at all pleased with the soaring temperatures — its feathers are all a-jumble! Of course, that could also be due to the exploding bacterial colony where its gut used to be and the oddly curious pigeon bretheren that visit, and preen, on occasion. But, I digress.


Efforts have been made to get the tenant across the shaftway to do something about the poor dead bird. But the tenant does nothing.

So how long before this pigeon decomposes?

Said tourist back in February: "Before full decomposition you will have three more Subway sandwich shops in your neighborhood."

How long before this pigeon decomposes?

And here we have a dead pigeon lying on an air conditioner behind a building somewhere on East Sixth Street.

Suz on Sixth, who took the photo, notes the pigeon has been there for months. There have been those across-the-air-shaft conversations with the tenant about disposing the bird. But, it remains.

"On our end, we're just curious how long it'll take to fully decompose; an urban memento mori, if you will," Suz on Sixth said. "It's only yet down to about a third of its original size."

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...
