The Columba livia domestica (pigeon) has evolved from the rock pigeon, the first domesticated bird (ca. 10,000 years ago). Most people are familiar with the feral pigeons (also called city doves, city pigeons, or street pigeons) that returned to the wild; these are distinct from the undomesticated rock pigeon. Instead of living in sea cliffs, feral pigeons roost on the ledges of buildings, are well adapted to urban life, are abundant in towns and cities throughout much of the world, and are often viewed as vermin since they scavange for food and carry disease, and their nests and droppings make a mess. They are frequently referred to as "rats with wings," a phrase that originated from Woody Allen's 1980 movie, "Stardust Memories."
Thank you sir...Woody Allen?......Poetry is lost on him. Ha!!
