photo series: Ghetto Birds - About pigeons: Ghetto Birds 14

Axel works as a volunteer for the 'Stadttaubenprojekt'. Before a railway underpass in Frankfurt-Höchst is protected with nets to keep pigeons away Axel collects pigeon eggs and chicks to save them from being trapped. Most municipalities believe that pigeons will leave cities when bird defense systems are too heavy and food is too scarce. But feral pigeons will not leave cities in search for food since it contradicts their instincts.
