A Rock Pigeon About To Take Off

Pigeon nest among bird deterrent spikes

This pigeon has built its nest among the spikes intended to deter it. I only had a moment to snap this one shot (hence the lousy resolution) because my bus was about to leave the station. I’ve seen this nest be active for 2 years now and I look for it every time I’m at this station.

What I love about this is how the pigeons have prevailed in spite of human intervention; their ability to adapt to even the most challenging conditions and their powerful urge to nest trumping all and any obstacles.
