The Urban Pigeon

"There's nothing shy about pigeons - they're too busy surviving to worry about what people think. And most people don't really think anything about pigeons. But if you know what to look for, you'll find a tough bird built for surviving, and thriving, in the urban wilderness.

"In the premiere episode of The Biopolitan, we trace Columba livia's path from cliffs to cornices, explore the dangers of city life, and make a case for the pigeon as a no-nonsense beacon of adaptability."

Among the narrators: New York University's Colin Jerolmack, who published The Global Pigeon through The University of Chicago Press just last month.
