Birds in Amsterdam


As many big cities in Europe Amsterdam has a lot of pigeons flying around. In 2001 they counted 12 thousend of them,  including 2750 in the innercity.

For some people they are a plaque with lots of dirty pigeon droppings, but others feed them. The seagull didn't like the pigeon food.

But they sat fraternally together on the fence afterwards
Linking to "Saturday's Critters".

  5. Oh my goodness. That's a lot of pigeons! I recently daw a documentary about them, and would you believe they know people by their faces? If you feed a pigeon peanuts it will remember you, even if you return wearing different clothes.

  7. Wy do the pigeons LOVE the cities? The number you have there in Amsterdam is mind boggling. I know some think they are a pain in the neck, but I have always loved them. These pictures show how contented they are in your beautiful city.

  11. Pigeons and gulls get a bad reputation with some, but I don't mind them at all.

  12. Not only do they congregate in cities, they are visible everywhere on the grain bins and silos in the countryside here.

  13. Pigeons here do not come very close to us . Maybe because we don't feed them.
