Kind of a larger version of Marie's sculpture. One of my favorite Everybody Loves Raymond episodes.

Full episode, less the commercials

https://apnews.com/article/australia-to-kill-pigeon-from-oregon-faae5a66c336c8b2dc902b1ed4270345
CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — A racing pigeon has survived an extraordinary 13,000-kilometer (8,000-mile) Pacific Ocean crossing from the United States to find a new home in Australia. Now authorities consider the bird a quarantine risk and plan to kill it.

Kevin Celli-Bird said Thursday he discovered the exhausted bird that arrived in his Melbourne backyard on Dec. 26 had disappeared from a race in the U.S. state of Oregon on Oct. 29.

If you think for a minute rabbits in Australia and what damage they caused, and snails in California, you can understand why they do not want a new pest in their country. I have a few pigeons who have arrived recently in my village. Over the last few years they have not prolificated to excess, but if they do, measures will be taken to limit the flying rats.

Not that I do not like rats. My mother was a chemist at a V.A. hospital and rescued many rats and white mice from being killed after experiments. My bedroom was full of both and I thoroughly enjoyed them.

That reminds me. My father would bring home parakeets that people were tired of. At on point I had a dozen parakeets in my bedroom. Luckily, I was able to trade them for a transistor radio to a parakeet breeder (as a young teen-ager this was a bargain).
