Bird on a wire
Another Monday has come and gone. Once again, taking some time off on Sunday ends up causing extra work the next day. Good thing coffee is plentiful. Today's picture is of a pigeon sitting on the fence near the building where I work. It, and a friend, seem to always be there, and frequently my colleagues accompanying me on trips to the DFAC will throw a piece of gravel at the birds, invariably missing. I'm told that the pigeons are actually a real problem on the flightline, as feathers and jet engines don't mix well together. Apparently, occasional "hunting parties" are organized where a bunch of soldiers (or airmen) get in a bus with pellet guns and drive around shooting the birds. Now I know why we have fried chicken at the DFAC so often.
