I’ve gotten some great suggestions regarding the pigeon crisis we are facing in the world today (and especially at my house). Consultant Jim Seybert suggests I should scare the pigeons away by playing the harmonica in their vicinity, thus utilizing one of my passions (some might say obsessions) as the solution to the problem. This is why they pay Jim the big bucks.
My mountain-man cousin Don Mark in Whitehorse, Yukon (“Indoor plumbing? What’s that?”) has this to say: “Yukon had a population of pigeons left behind by the U.S. Army when they were building the Alaska Highway in 1942. They survived on their own for many years until a bunch of marsh hawks showed up (global warming?) and ate them all up about ten years ago.”
Do you have FedEx up there, Don? Send some of those marsh hawks my way.
