Pigeons constitute half of the bird family Columbidae, the other half being doves. Pigeons can be found all over the world, and in New York City, are considered “flying rats.” The pigeon population is regarded as toxic to local New Yorkers, whereas, other populations consider them cuisine; aka squab.

A mid-afternoon stroll up Broadway, approaching Madison Square Park, the Empire State Building appeared even more prominent as the sun shone brightly on the New York City landmark.

Even more striking a site than usual.
