Rural fact #1

Since we moved to the country we noticed that we often see pigeons on the road early in the morning. It can be quite a hazard dodging the birds while hurrying to the station and we'd thought they were probably feeding.

Actually the birds are collecting small gravelly stones which they use to grind up food inside their gizzard (a very strong, tough muscle inside the bird) . Thanks to Rob at the Wild Meat Company for this fact!
