Mickaboo – True Pals To The Pigeon

Stacey and a few others sent me this. Cheers, everyone.

It’s about Mickaboo, a voluntary organisation based in San Fransisco dedicated to the urban pigeon. Bring it on. Not only do they rescue, they fix us up with homes to go to. Total relocation package. Jesus. Thinking I might head over there myself. Sit on their doorstep panting a bit. See what happens.

Anyway, they’re after some cash to step up the meds supply. All you need to do is click on this link, and register your vote. Piece of piss. It’s been a while since I last asked for action, but this is clearly a genius and much needed cause. Maybe they’ll open a branch over here?

In the meantime, have a butchers at this rather nice video showing some of the sorts they’ve picked up.

Don’t know why but I’ve always had a thing for the American pigeon, providing they don’t try to speak:

    Yeah you know it bruv.

    I have a Several internet surfing ( American ) hen friends meself.

    Even fancy ancy one of them pigeons.

    Had a chummy with one of them on webcam , I found her to be short , rather on the dumpy side , a few demonic feathers with a mind of their own.

    But as soon as I heard her thick accent coo , behind the scenes I was larfin. Frankly now everytime I pass a american type in Central london , Yknow , the tourist scene.

    Many Yankee types fly owver in their flocks for the sights in london.

    As soon as they open their beak it’s ” wreear wreear wreear ! ”

    I just avta larf.

    Frankee: So true. As Alan Partridge once said – “I’m sorry, that’s just a noise.”
