urban birds

right in the middle of our little rural community we have a downtown area where these pigeons long ago took up residence. they roost atop this old church building. occasionally they take off en masse and circle the town only to return again to this same roof. and theyre always there. every time i pass them i wonder. why are they in this locale? why are they in no other place in the area? whos feeding them stale bread crusts and peanuts? what kind of place is this for such a bird? they should just fly themselves to boston. or to new york. pigeon life there must be way better than it is here.
