    The birds certainly seem to love her…

    The pigeons make the pic!

  5. pattisj says:

    I’m kind of glad the pigeons that visit my backyard aren’t quite this friendly. Your photo says a lot about her and the birds.

  6. pigeons can be pests in our local parks. like squirrels and geese, pigeons are nice in the near distance, but i don’t want them getting too up close and personal. to each her own.

      Geese terrify me. I’ve had a couple run-ins with some geese gangs and I love them from afar, but quake in my boots when i have to walk by them.

  7. What a strange sight! The only people I see in London who want anything to do with pigeons are the kids that chase them lol

  8. Do they ever poop on her? 🙂

  9. Vishy says:

    Nice picture, TBM. The pigeons look really nice.

  10. Meanderer says:

    I’d be a bit scared of pigeons sitting so close 🙂

  11. It makes me want to visit there again (I haven’t been there since 1995!)

  12. I love birds and I find pigeons and doves fun but I agree about not wanting them on my shoulder. A great snap though TBM!

  13. Beth Ann says:

    That is an amazing picture. Not sure I would want pigeons hanging all over me but it seems to work for her.

    • TBM says:

      to each their own. We have a pigeon lady in the neighborhood, but she just feeds them. Not once have I seen one on her shoulder like this.

  14. My husband tells me that it’s a blessing when birds poop on you! Maybe the woman in the photo has gotten boundless blessings:-)
    The pigeons seem right at home on her shoulder. Nice photo!

    • TBM says:

      Not sure about her, but I know I’ve been blessed a few times in my life. Didn’t know at the time that it was a blessing. However, others around me saw the humor.

  15. Oh, I love that bridge. She reminds me of the bird woman in Mary Poppins.
