A photo that police say shows a pigeon’s nest made out of hypodermic needles is going viral, but bird experts are divided on whether it’s plausible that the photo is real.

Vancouver Police Superintendent Michelle Davey tweeted a picture on Wednesday showing a pile of needles in a dirty sink with three eggs on top of them. Her caption suggests the depressing-looking scene was a product of the opioid crisis.

Fake news? drug addicted pigeon? or drug addict with a fetish for pigeon eggs?

They do a lot of "animal" witchcraft. I believe the dead pidgeon is something related to "being a rat" when there are no rats available. :) but :( for the bird. It's relatively close to the turtle doves that represent the Holy Spirit. They use "nests" as well but I don't know exactly what those represent and whether it's nefarious. This one is.

That seems phony, a pigeon would never use hypodermic needles to build a nest. Lots of heroin use in the area, it mat be an artsy social commentary. Vancouver is nice, try the sour diesel.

yup.gif Was in that area for a couple days down by the train station.
They were all so friendly, the traditional Vancouver greeting is "hey man, can I bum a smoke?"
None of them had anything in their eyes.
No spark of life, just dead... hard to explain other than that.

Dunno, maybe it is real. Maybe the hypodermic needles were already in the sink and pigeon mama went into egg labor.
Maybe pigeon daddy was the junkie. Maybe she's punishing him by laying their eggs on drug paraphernalia. Maybe he locked her in there while he went out to suck pigeon dlcks for money and she had no other choice than to lay her eggs there.

We just don't know... sad2.gif

Never had pigeon but would love to try it. I hear it tastes great.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Pigeon pie is all the rage with the rich elite on 'Game of thrones', so it can`t be that bad?  dunno.gif

Quote:Pigeons weren't always so reviled. Just a generation or two ago, they were considered fine table fare and most cookbooks included more than a few recipes for pigeon or squab, which by definition is a young pigeon that hasn't yet taken wing. Today most people wouldn't consider a pigeon as even edible, let alone delectable.

The pigeons in the country eat grains and are, by all accounts, quite tasty.
City pigeons eat God knows what, and should probably be avoided at all costs.
