When the pigeons throw a party

We were walking in downtown Chicago when I spotted this pigeon feeding frenzy. They were wild--climbing on top of each other, pushing and shoving. Maybe it's more like a pigeon mosh pit. I snapped one picture and was about to take another, aiming (of course) for that perfect shot, when a homeless man came charging up from around the corner, chasing all the pigeons away. He muttered something indicating he hated pigeons. I could sympathize with this but he seemed a bit threatening and since I was not sure if his problem was with the pigeons or with anyone who was crazy enough to take pictures of them, I decided it was time to move on.
