Pigeons on the Windowsill

Surprisingly, this hasn't been all that uncommon over the last few weeks, but this morning was something else.  For about two hours there was a continuous rotation of pigeons landing on my windowsill to roost.  Some hunkered down for five or ten minutes, some immediately pushed the others out of the way to get a better spot, but I guess my office window was literally the hot spot today.

I was back and forth between the studio this morning and every time I came back I'd snap another picture.  It was actually an amazing photo op because the pigeons weren't scared of me at all.  I was able to get right up to the glass and take some incredible detail shots of the various birds while they went about their business.  In the end it was a pretty entertaining show.
