Pigeon on Pigeon.

“Birds do it.  Bees do it.  Even educated fleas do it.”  Cole Porter wasn’t the first to witness a pigeon totem pole firsthand in the City of Lights.  These lovebirds literally can’t get off one other!  Needless to say, pigeons have got a good life here, much to the chagrin of homosapiens and sparrows alike.  They are free to roam without a Navigo.  They get weeks of paid vacation.  They eat the choicest crumbs in the world, but they never get fat!  They are a little aloof, but it’s probably cultural, right?  But the life of a French pigeon isn’t completely careless; they are also on restaurant menus.
