We fed the pigeons

Since the last few years feeding pigeons at St. Mark's Square, Venice, Italy has been banned. We were there in the year 1999 and we had the joy of having these pigeons sitting on our shoulders taking feed from our hands. The place was packed with pigeons a rarest site ever. Did you get to feed them?

@allknowing , I have never been to Venice, but, had I been, I would have avoided feeding the pigeons. I don't like anything flapping about me, the sound of their wings freaks me out. Good you got to feed them though. :)

Here we hardly see the pigeons. Especially after H5N1, people don't raise birds as well as the past. But there are several pigeons nearby my office building. They are raised by someone and they are like the pets. I saw many pigeons when we travelled to Russia. Yes, I fed them with my bread. I liked that they were not afraid of you. So I must be friendly, too
