I just read a fun article in O magazine June 2009 titled "Something to Crow About"
I love the second to the last paragraph quoting Josh Klein. " He points out that while we tend to be big fans of endangered species like pandas, we're far less fond of species that are good at surviving among us, the so called synathropes- pigeons, rats, coyotes, crows. ' I'd like to see us reexamine out relationship with these species. After all their doing their best to adapt to situations we put them in."
