From Anna Dove, New York Bird Club President:
“Hello Pigeon Fanciers and Supporters,
“We will be celebrating National Pigeon Day on Saturday, June 19th from 10am to 3pm on Pilgrim Hill in Central Park (5th Avenue and E. 72nd Street).
“If anyone would like to give a talk or other form of presentation that is pigeon-related, please let me know. Email Anna Dove: Bestbirdclub@yahoo.com
“We pigeon people are independent thinkers who do not blindly follow the crowd, and National Pigeon Day is an opportunity to set the
record straight -- pigeons are intelligent, peaceful and beautiful birds and we are glad and proud that they live in our midst.
“Thank you for your support of these beautiful and joyous creatures -- pigeons, and please visit the National Pigeon Day blog for updates
on the event:
Anna Dove, President of the York Bird Club, created National Pigeon Day in 2008. Please join Anna and all of us on Saturday, June 19th in Central Park to celebrate pigeons. We look forward to having you with us.
