Remember how the other day I was saying Paris, France had the best pigeons? Well I might have to rethink that. My friend Tom just showed me his trip photos of Italy. He and his wife made a quick stop in Pisa where, along with the Leaning Tower of, they saw this gem!
Minnesota is filled with larger than life ducks, prairie chickens, Paul Bunyons with Babes (as in his Blue Ox, not Barbie wannabies). I didn't know Italy went in for this sort of thing. My that's a handsome pigeon. Add Pisa, Italy to the list of destinations to visit before I die. (Tom assures me there is also an amply supply of live pigeons!)
Any interesting oversized wildlife near you?
