40 Unexpected “Pigeons” Around The World
We often see groups of pigeons flocking together in various spots that they’ve demarcated for themselves as their territory in cities, parks and other places where humans gather. However, it’s not only groups of pigeons that like to be in close proximity to humans apparently as this collection of pics will show.
Turns out that many birds and even animals such as foxes, moose and others tend to congregate near people possibly in the hopes of landing a lucky crumb or two. Regardless, we’re glad that those who spotted these gatherings chose to capture the adorable moments and share them with us as it’s just too wholesome to miss out on.

David Paterson: Rainbow lorikeets again. In some places they will stand en masse on people the same way that pigeons do. But unlike pigeons, rainbow lorikeets have very sharp claws. I’ve known them to pluck hair off your head to line their nest.
