There were almost fifty pigeons who had settled down in the corners of flat buildings in Dum Dum Park. They came to pick up bread crumbles and made a family inside our house. These avian species invited a pair of dove who lived in a dovecoot. Then came their guests like Kingfisher, Hornbill, Bulbul, and Woodpecker and many other rare avian species. The number of such pigeons have come down to a mere four. The reason being they were killed by a civet cat who prowls at night.
