BABYLON – in WINTER !!

lol, PAT McCARTHY just sent me this photo of his pigeon coops, (he has 2, one for the breeders and one for the young teens) collectively called ‘BABYLON COOPS’, up on his Brooklyn roof-top. he has a friend watching over them, while he is out west – and he said yes, they survived the last week’s wintery blast.
and, yes – I have been up on that roof – but in the fall, no snow. and it was dizzying-ly dis-orienting around the edges, but super amazing. he waves a big black flag to get the pigeons to fly out into the vast Brooklyn sky. he throws real reindeer pelts over the coops to protect them from the harsh winter weather. he bought them off eBay, straight from Norway, or some place life that. I was too entranced by the pigeons, and the homemade gear he devised for them – to remember all the facts.
you can see the reindeer pelts piled onto the coop on the left in the photo. that’s technically the ‘Babylon’ coop for the breeders. the coop to the right, is for the young jerks, lol. it’s called ‘JOEYS COOP’.
