The Famous Cliff Pigeons of the San Francisco Main Public Library

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

These critters have only an inch or so of ledge on San Francisco’s Main Public Library in Civic Center (right across the street from the Most Expensive Burger King in the World, Where They Knoweth Not of the Buck Double.)

This is about the only horizontal surface left in the area not covered with those anti-pigeon spikes.

I, for one, welcome our new avian overlords. (Actually, maybe not. Histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and psittacosis - the risk of contracting those conditions is something to consider before cleaning up after these flying rats.)

Maybe we’ll get the birth control thing figured out one of these days, but probably not.

All Hail King Pigeon.
