Join UPC President Karen Davis at National Pigeon Day Celebration
June 13, 2009 in New York City. Speakers/Presenters Wanted
The New York Bird Club cordially invites you to participate in the Second Annual National Pigeon Day Celebration on Saturday, June 13th from Noon to 4 p.m. on Pilgrim Hill in Central Park in New York City. This event is a celebration of pigeons and a time to give thanks to pigeons for the joy they bring us each day of the year – their sweet faces, cooing voices and majestic waddle lift our spirits amid the bustle of city life.
Can it be a coincidence that the pigeon – the dove – is a revered symbol of hope and love and peace on earth?
And did you know that pigeons can distinguish water as a drop, a puddle, a pool and an ocean – in a photograph?
Pigeons both male and female are devoted parents who feed and care for their nestlings together for a month or more after their chicks are born. And pigeons are famous for their ability to solve complicated conceptual problems and invent ways to communicate with human beings.
Speakers/Presenters are wanted for this year’s National Pigeon Day Celebration. Last year brought a wonderful gathering of people to Pilgrim Hill in Central Park to speak on behalf of pigeons (www.upc-online.org/pigeons/61608pigeonday.html). UPC President Karen Davis spoke to an enthusiastic crowd about “The ‘Human’ Nature of Pigeons” (www.upc-online.org/pigeons/UPCPigeonFlyer2.pdf) and will join the celebration again this year to talk about the family life of pigeons.
You are invited to participate on June 13th by giving a talk, setting up a booth or in any other way to show your support for pigeons.
Anna Dove of the New York Bird Club looks forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for being a voice for pigeons on June 13th and every day! Coo-kadoodle-coo!
