Pigeons again


In yesterdays post I told you about my troubles with pigeons, and though they do annoy me, I don't see them quite like flying rats like many people do. Even though there are a lot of them in Copenhagen, like here on the City Hall Square, they do have a function by cleaning up a lot of the mess we humans leave on the streets. On the other hand they're carriers of diseases and their droppings don't do the city much good. But part of our tax money is used to breed more of them in the tower of Copenhagen City Hall. Here 200 - 300 of them have their residence, which is an old tradition still being kept. No wonder there's a lot of them around here.
