Totally agree with you VP. Flying rats I have never liked them either.

yuck.

Kate said...

They do dirty everything, and I don't understand why people encourage them by feeding them.

Jack said...

There is some serious damage her. I hate to see the church neglected and falling to the pigeons.

Farmchick said...

Sad to see these birds ruining the church.

I remember all the posts about the church. This is even sadder.

There's just too many of them VP, I agree with Brattcat, they do make a yucky mess!

Dina said...

Oi, they are everywhere, judging from your photo evidence.
What I hate is the tiny fleas they carry that can bite people.

Still, better than having the church infested with bats--maybe.

Steffe said...

I don't have any problems with birds. People on the other hand have been known to destroy things.

But still they are so beautiful, even if they do nasty things!

Virginia said...

It's awful. There was a church outside of Paris where they were roosting inside and it was so sad.

Flying rats they are, a true plague, but your detail shots are great.

THANKS for your concern about the situation we have (and have had for some days) here in Norway.
It feels good to know, that you and other people know about it. It is still like a very strong and bad movie.
We will stand up for our freedom and open democratic sociaty, and not let it happen again.

Hope you and your family have a nice and sunny summer holiday!

Greeyings from Gunn.

I don't like pigeons either. We call them rats with wings. :)
Too bad people feed them which leads to them being comfy in urban surroundings. :(

Pigeons show no respect. :)

Kaori said...

I remember seeing the inside. Droppings are the saddest things.
