Meet Tina Piña Trachtenburg, street performance artist and animal advocate.

Laura and I walked down to Union Square to the Holiday Market.  It would have been hard to maneuver the popular market on a Saturday afternoon even without the stroller. What a crowd! The weather felt like a warm Spring day.

At the entrance point, we saw this flock of pigeons on the steps and I placed a bill in the open suitcase and asked to photograph the creator of the felt birds.  Then I asked if I might blog her photo and she agreed.   She directed me to the bright green fact sheet under the donations.

Count the Pigeons on a City Rooftop

At first glance you think you are seeing architectural details, all along the roof ledge.  There were at least fifty of them.  Part of city life- the pigeon.  Today’s photo/post  evokes the poet Timons Esaias whose chapbook title is  The Influence of Pigeons on Architecture For a copy ($8.50) contact Tim via his website.

You may remember Timons Esaias was guest poet on the blog for his poem. By Their Sidewalks You Will Know Them (click here) posted about this time last year.

Birds in the City

Not in a tree this time
or flying above.
People have feelings about them.
