A pigeon zine! Made by the lovely Small Science Collective. Meave and I are totally all about this! Goddamn I love pigeons.
They have a little discussion about pigeons on the site. Pigeons and Darwin. I actually read that passage about pigeons by Darwin that they are talking about. It’s hella boring. Sorry. I love Darwin though! Though I’m not sure I believe in the idea of species. Some people have suggested that we’d learn a lot more if we organize a map illustrating the dispersal of different traits in a type of animal rather than segregating them into different species. The traits would likely correspond with different environmental conditions and we’d see why or how the traits evolved. As the definition of species gets murkier and murkier, we might want to look for alternative systems of organization.
That’s enough book-learning for today!
