A Pigeon's Empire 
Breakfast and a view

I snapped this pic while atop the Empire State Building, and it's still one of my favorite photos to date. Though pigeons generally fly under the radar literally and metaphorically, they do seem to have a lot more figured out than meets the eye. These common birds have populated so many places successfully and, among other things, have even earned medals during war. Personally I'd like to know how the pigeon in the video managed this breakfast arrangement. No words.
