Love is in the Air in Manhattan – Paired Pigeons Mate

Paired Pigeons Mate

Minutes after I left the two lovebirds, Shia Labeuof and Carey Mulligan, at the Irish Hunger Memorial, I saw another two real lovebirds right in front of me. They were preening each other and then….French kissed! No kidding, see pictures below!

This is the first time I have ever seen Pigeons kissed, let along French kissing. What’s going on? First, it was Labeouf and Mulligan holding hands minutes earlier, and now the Pigeons are French kissing…Is Love in the air in Manhattan?

If there is a season for Love, Fall must be it.

Where: Battery Park City, New York City

When: 11:19 am on Oct 23, 2009        (Click on the pictures to enlarge them)

(For Pigeons, the ‘French kiss’ is called billing, which is ‘often a prelude to mating…Once paired, pigeons may mate for life.’ Smithsonian National Zoological Park Website)

So apparently, ‘once paired, Pigeons may mate for life’. Is this a good omen for Labeuof and Mulligan?
