Imagine being in a city square with hundreds of pigeons and the first thing that pops into your head is the story “The Birds.” After reading that story no one wants to be around a huge flock of birds.
After a few minutes of hesitation I finallly let a pigeon eat out of my hand and to my relief he didn’t peck my eyes out. Then I stood up and held my hand out. A new fear had risen, what if the bird totally missed my hand and ran into me? When little birds run into my windows at home they would hit it hard. It is not a pretty sound, and I didn’t want a bird to hit me at full speed. After a few times of jerking my hand away as the pigeon flew towards me I finally let one land on me. After awhile one landed on my shoulder ans just sat there and in the end I still had all of my body parts.
