Pigeon de Paris

by gordonmichaelsutton

Incredibly busy at the moment and it’s quite a stressful old time too. In the absence of more substantial posts, I’m opting for the occasional mini-post. Spotted this pigeon on one of several trips to Paris not long ago. Pretty sure it was somewhere in le Marais. Apparently the French word for pigeon is pigeon. So now you know. I’m impressed by the pigeon’s composure and je ne sais quoi.

      I like to think of it as a kind of malevolent sangfroid.

    This pigeon looks evilly clever, probably staring at people for a piece of food to eat 😀

      Fortunately I was not on the menu that day! Know exactly what you mean about being ‘evilly clever’.

      You want to suggest a name for the pigeon? How about Alfonse? Or Hubert?

    I don’t think he’s any relation to my parade bird. Does he really speak French?
