Penthouse Living's for a Bird like Me


So I'm walking down one of the snooty Park Slope Brooklyn NY streets in late Fall and meet a really nice New York State Assemblyman.  He's looking up, which means that it's either going to rain, or a bird just cast a viscous ballot his way.  Well, I was sort of half right, because he was contemplating an abandoned bird's nest.  In point of fact, the nest was deserted for the winter because it's rumored that all Park Slope high rise nest owners have condo's in Las Vegas.


With trees denuded of their masking foliage, what a cool way to find out how to live in this area without having to pay an outlandish rent or mortgage.  These photos were taken on just one block.  Maybe the Assemblyman was figuring out a way of legally registering them to vote.  This is New York City, you know.

This is what happens when you get married and spend six months in the same

nest with the in-laws.

Of course, pigeons are the ultimate urban aficionados.  They revel in the delights of the city throughout the year.  For these intrepid denizens of high-rise living (particularly those in Brooklyn), winter opens up a new dimension in rent free luxury.  When air conditioners come out, the pigeons move in... partaking in the cavernous pleasures of a newly renovated apartment.  I wonder if they have cable TV and an internet connection?

This image is a kicker.  You can't frighten Brooklynites, even if they have feathers.  A Momma, Pappa pair of pigeons decides to take up housekeeping and raise a family in this empty air conditioner enclosure.  To frighten them away, the residents of the apartment purchased a phony Owl and put it on a nearby window ledge.

Undaunted, mom and dad completely ignore the owl and continue in their child raising.  You can see one of them by the nest in the enclosure and the other to the lower right, obviously waiting for an ice cream truck to come along so they can purchase a popsicle. 

This photo is too cute for words.  If you want to get a larger view, just click the image above.
