I like to imagine that the other pigeons on the roof are waiting for their turn on this spinning rooftop vent.

Given the lack of interest by the other pigeons, I think it’s more likely they’re saying, “Whoa Bob, you’re a crazy one!” Although this sort of behavior by various birds (presumably all dare-devil thrill-seekers) is well documented - riding on things just, apparently, for the “fun” of it.

That pigeon is an idiot.

That’s not what those things are for.


#7

Knowing pigeons as I do, I’ll bet the pigeon thinks the world suddenly started rotating and he’s the one standing still.

Great, now I’ve got pigeon vomit all over my roof.


#10

Is pigeon vomit more vile or less than pigeon poo?

:poop:


#11

Good point. They get you coming and they get you going.


#12

Thinks? They don’t have that much brain.

Reminds me of the cat on the Roomba. We got two kittens – litter-mates – about 15 years back. One of them managed to get herself under a small upside-down cat bad, and began walking around with it on top of her. The other kitten promptly got on top and took a ride. Wish I had a video of it.

Maybe the vent is a source of warm air on a cold morning?


#15

See, there’s your problem. Like a mechanical bull in a bar, you shouldn’t give 'em alcohol before they get on.

There are roller and tumbler breeds of pigeons. That one’s a spinner.
