Everyone has probably used the old cliche of ‘ not judging a book by it’s cover’ more than once in their lifetime. I used to cast this judgment on pigeons. I could not think of them as food! ……my thoughts went from someones pet to…..urghhh they are the flying rats in the City pooping on Nelsons head.
Well seriously we get angry with these birds especially as they raid the freshly sown fields and farmers try their utmost to keep them at bay. I have seen some incredibly funky and clever tricks that farmers use from dangling glimmering old CD’s to a scarecrow or even a fake shotgun sound randomly clapping away at all hours of the day. The truth is nothing really works. There are too many of them and if you can’t beat it, eat it!
Woodpigoens are delicious and have been a delicacy served on many restaurant
