Something You Won't See Every Day: A Baby Pigeon In Carroll Gardens

Though there is no shortage of pigeons in Carroll Gardens or New York City for that matter, have you ever seen a baby pigeon? I hadn't. Neither had Anna Kuchment, neighborhood resident and editor at Scientific American. But yesterday, she came across this little feathered fellow in front of Giardini's Pizza on Smith Street.
Why is a baby pigeon sighting a rarity? Because they donât leave the nest until they are as large as their parents. That would explain it.

Did anyone else see the baby bird yesterday?
Thanks for sharing your photos and post, Anna.
