Officials there reportedly are trying to be as nice as they can about reducing their numbers. They’ve built a hotel for birds. The plan: lure the pigeons there to nest, and then steal their eggs.


Good morning. I’m David Greene. Portugal has a pigeon population problem. And The Wall Street Journal reports officials in Lisbon are trying to be as nice as they can about reducing their numbers. They have built basically a luxury hotel for birds. The plan – lure the pigeons there to nest, then caretakers sneak in and steal their eggs. The birdhouse has fresh water, gourmet bird food, even a nursery, which makes you wonder if the pigeons are somehow outsmarting the humans here. It’s MORNING EDITION.
