For The Birds

July 15, 2009

Today I was walking by the Park Slope Armory and witnessed a shirtless man in his mid-60s wade into a group of expectant pigeons, throw all these cheese puffs onto the sidewalk, step on them a few times, then leave the scene. Unfortunately I couldn’t take a picture while he crushed up the puffs, but this all happened pretty quickly. Below is a shot of the subsequent scene, one which I suspect is familiar to these pigeons, or whatever passes for familiar for such low-wattage noggins as theirs.

I should note that the man crossed to the Armory side of the street to feed these birds, leaving the residential side cheese puff-free. I wondered if this could be the same gentleman I saw on the same block last Christmas, diligently transporting dead Christmas trees along the same route.
