We have the capability to build the world's first....... pigeon ranking?
However, you can look up all sorts of bird counts in the Audubon Society's Christmas Bird Count. They have a specific datapoint for local counts in lots of places for the number of Rock Pigeons among many other species. You just need to manually select a state, then a specific place and voila: a beakful of bird counts.
Can we crowdsource this somehow? Feel free to post pigeon counts for specific cities in the comments. I'm just confused though. I thought we poisoned most of the pigeons Downtown some years ago? Certainly seems like there are a lot fewer than there used to be.
Speaking of lists.. we are the 18th craziest city. Why? Just like it works out with so many other aggregate metrics like this, we don't seem to stand out in any specific component, but consistent mediocrity across the board pushes up into the elite regions. Now if they added list-crazy to the criteria.....
