He Thinks He’s a Flamingo

I was all, ‘Oh my god, that pigeon has one leg!’ But a minute later his other leg came down. But only for a few seconds. Do they all do this and I just never noticed?

I swear he was hanging out like this for a half an hour, on one leg.

He was a plump little guy too. Wait a minute! He does this to play on people’s sympathies and gets more food. Right??

It’s a well known pigeon scam and I’m the last to know.
