From far away we spotted a woman and a flock of pigeons on the ground. There were several by standers around them. Pigeons were not moving. Were they hypnotized by the woman? As we approached to the pigeons and woman we learned that the pigeons are stuffed birds! In the photo you can see her finishing an additional pigeon, which later joined to the troop on the ground.

Thank you, pigeon lady, for the great art exhibition!;pigeons mom
