Pigeons on the concrete alas
The Civic Center Plaza and the accompanying main library building are the hub of a large flock of pigeons...
...whose scruffiness and grey color fit the human denizens and the buildings of the neighborhood quite perfectly.
The library people have put up netting on the top of the Grove Street side of the building because pigeons were finding its series of cubbyholes absolute perfection in which to roost.
So now that they have been banished from their old home, the pigeons are hanging out on narrow strips below the old cubbyholes and they couldn't look more sculptural if they tried.
