Thanksgiving Birds

Trending: Eating birds on Thanksgiving in Hoboken

Humans aren’t the only species that makes eating birds a regular habit, as Hoboken411 reader Dorothy witnessed over at Pier A Park the other day.

Peregrine Falcons often swing by Hoboken for a pit stop. Why? Probably because it’s easy feeding for them.

City pests like squirrels and pigeons are conditioned to be around people with little fear. Thus, a falcon scored a (disgusting) treat like this pigeon he was seen scarfing down in the roof of the little hut on the pier.

I wonder if he was mad that the “stuffing” consisted of street garbage left behind by the city’s inept cleanup crews.

Happy Thanksgiving, Mr. Falcon!
