Seattle Pigeons


After some decidedly unscientific research I'd like to offer the following: Seattle pigeons are not as street-smart as New York City pigeons.

I come to this conclusion after passing by at least 3 road-kill pigeons in Capitol Hill in the last month. I don't remember ever seeing more than one or two smushed pigeon in the years I lived in New York.

This is one man's anecdotal evidence. But I'm sticking with it.

Maybe traffic moves faster here because it's less congested, which gives birds less time to get outta the way? I think some of them get zapped by the trolley poles and hit by buses too. In NY, subway keeps the metro off surface streets, which would reduce rat-bird... i mean pigeon, deaths. :-)
