Never seen home alone? All ya need is a big bag of seed and some training. They will come for the food.

Marines Alone: In Spain.

I had a similar experience on my med cruise. Ported in Barcelona, took a train to Tarragona. While there, visited the square, bought a bag of seed from a little old lady for $5, threw up the seed, spread my arms, and proceeded to have pigeons cover my arms and head from fingertips to fingertips. So surreal, and a memory I'll treasure forever.

Still gets me that Trump is in that one. I had to look into it after realizing it and he made it a a stipulation to using his hotel (because of course he did).

Yes, make a noise when you offer food, slowly attempt to pet them to gain trust. They will associate the noise with food time and become friendly. Now you have bird gang.

Yup. I had a pair of California towhees in my backyard one year that were nearly finger tame. I could have gotten them there in a few weeks, but one of them got their head snapped in a rat trap I had hidden behind a bush. I was sooooo sad when I realized I'd killed one of them by not hiding the trap better. The other one left shortly thereafter. Hopefully they found a new mate. They're really strongly pair bonded.
