This news story is something that Charlie, from “The Someday Birds,” would absolutely love. Heck, I absolutely love it. The only thing I take exception to is that in the article, someone refers to pigeons as “flying rats.” Now, that is just so mean. Especially when the pigeons in question (Coco, Norbert, and Julius, by name) are helping us combat a terrible man-made problem: pollution. And never fear, they are under the caring eye of a veterinarian.

I just think their wee backpacks are pretty darn cute. Like they are on their way to Pigeon School or something.

Good work, Coco, Julius and Norbert. Good work indeed.
