Pigeons From Around The World In Everyday Situations

If ever there was a moment when I find myself being just just a little bit jealous of a couple of pigeons from around the world in an everyday situation, then this is it. Sent to me by Anne-Sophie.

Check them out:

Two of the luckiest pigeons alive sunning it up in Mauritius.

Hmmmmm – shade or sun, what’ll it be?

Cheers for sending them, Anne-Sophie! Any chance you can you take me with you next time?

Now here’s somewhere I wouldn’t mind hanging out, not least because of the name – Chattanooga Tennessee, USA – kid you not.

Pippin and Crumpet clearly loving everything about their posh perch:

Who wouldn’t?

Looks like the sun shines over there too..

Cheers for sending it, Nicole!

Nice one.

(Freeeak) Pigeons From Around The World In Everyday Situations

Ham, clearly a dude well into his global travel, sent me these. Cheers, Ham.

Found this one in Shanghai Zoo in China:

That’s one freaky head dress going on.

No wonder he’s behind bars:

Fat Jesus.

Then again, we all know the Chinese aren’t exactly fans of the pigeon

That said, if all their pigeons look like this, I’m not surprised.

This is the sign stuck to his cage:

Otherwise translated as: ‘Zi Xiong Guan Jiu – freak of the pigeon world, shackled for his own good.’

As for the ‘Sheepmaker Crowned Pigeon’. Eh? Who the fuck makes sheep anymore, and who gave Sheepmakers the right to crown a pigeon in the first place?

China: A place I won’t be visiting in the near future.

These dudes, hanging loose in San Francisco, were sent to me by Emily.

Tell you what, I reckon San Fran is the place to be if this lot are anything to go by:

Nice view.

Check these two out. Clearly not a care in the world:

Nothing better to do than sniff their own arses.

And this one is a particularly nice shot:

It’s also another prime example of a pigeon appreciating art.

Cheers for sending them, Emily!

Check out this scary fuck from Croatia sent to me by Denis, who aptly titled it Beelzebub:

Jesus. Remind me to give Croatia the wide berth.

That said, if he’s just just polishing off what is standard fare for the Croatian pigeon, bring it on!

Cheers for sending it, Denis!

This time, it’s a couple of hurdy gurgys from Finland going about their business on a beach in Helsinki:

Seurasaari walk 052

Cheers for sending it, Bob!

Dude at the front is called Pekka, apparently.

Reckons he met me a couple of years back.

Have to say, he does look rather familiar…

Pigeons From Around The World In Everyday Situations

Based on the fact I keep getting sent pictures of pigeons in normal everyday situations from around the world, I’ve decided to do a series of posts called, ‘Pigeons From Around The World In Everyday Situations’.

First off, here’s a gang hanging out in Oslo sent to me by Glen. Cheers, Glen! I wasn’t entirely sure where Oslo was, so I looked it up. It’s here. For any that could ever be arsed, it’s not far as the crow flies.

Anyway, it was taken in a particularly rough part of town called Gronland. Apparently the dudes were attracted by the smell emanating from the Fisk&Vilt (Norwegian for Fish&Wild) barbeque. Didn’t get much of a look in though as the joint is heavily patrolled by large mustached bouncers who promptly kicked them out on account of their piss poor table manners.

Any of you out there want to send me your pics of pigeons from around the world in everyday situations, email them to brianpigeon AT gmail DOT com.

Nice one.
