Pigeon of the Day #2126

I made my way out to Oakland to see the doctor today – my first checkup in years. A little crew of pigeons was wandering about at the train station, as pigeons commonly do, but several of them had made themselves comfortable on the sun-warmed concrete, heating their bellies, feet completely vanished into their mass. This one let me come quite close before I made it too uncomfortable, so we get to see some rare details; the beak is a strange, squishy sort of thing.

My blood has been drawn and my arm is sore, and thanks to our brilliant medical scientists I am now better protected from the elements. Here’s to your health.
