    My daughter is in the Army National Guard, and last summer when she was at her 2 week training exercise, she sent me a picture of baby birds that were in a nest behind the cab of a truck that hadn’t been used for a long time. It took me a while to figure out that they were baby pigeons… not the most attractive youngsters!
