Pigeon Feathers: And Other Stories
Pigeon Feathers: And Other
When this classic collection of stories first appeared—in 1962, on the author’s thirtieth birthday—Arthur Mizener wrote in The New York Times Book Review: “Updike is a romantic [and] like all American romantics, that is, he has an irresistible impulse to go in memory home again in order to find himself. . . . The precise recollection of his own family-love, parental and marital, is vital to him; it is the matter in which the saving truth is incarnate. . . . Pigeon Feathers is not just a book of very brilliant short stories; it is a demonstration of how the most gifted writer of his generation is coming to maturity; it shows us that Mr. Updike’s fine verbal talent is no longer pirouetting, however gracefully, out of a simple delight in motion, but is beginning to serve his deepest insight.”

The New York Pigeon is a photography book that reveals the unexpected beauty of the omnipresent pigeon as if Vogue magazine devoted its pages to birds, rather than fashion models. In spite of pigeons' ubiquity in New York and other cities, we never really see them closely and know very little about their function in the urban ecosystem. This book brings to light the intriguing history, behavior and splendor of a bird that we frequently overlook.The New York Pigeon reveals the unexpected beauty of our omnipresent pigeon. Employing exquisite portraiture that one might find in a fashion magazine, the book features this underappreciated urban bird in a fresh, glamorous light.Finally, the much maligned pigeon gets its 15 minutes. “stool pigeon...” “rats with wings...” Why? What did pigeons ever do to deserve such disrespect? (They mind their own business, they saved lives in World War I and II, and they’re beautiful to boot.) Andrew Garn seeks to right this egregious wrong— through his keen eye, the pigeon is photographed in all its unexpected glory—elevated to its rightful place as a wondrous being of beauty and grace, soaring though time and space.

Selected Stories: The Alligators, A & P, Pigeon Feathers, The Family Meadow, Witnesses, Separating
Selected Stories: The Alligators, A & P, Pigeon
John Updike reads six stories he has selected from the 100-odd he has published. "A & P", recounting a moral crisis on the checkout counter, is his most anthologized story. "Pigeon Feathers", the longest story included, tells of a 14-year-old boy's fear of death and the answer he finds. "The Family Meadow" describes a piece of America, a picnic reunion in New Jersey. "The Witnesses" and "The Alligators" both deal with love, as felt by a middle-aged man and a fifth-grade boy. "Separating" recounts the June day when Richard and Joan Maple separate, in front of their four children. Mr. Updike, when asked to described his method of reading aloud, said, "I try to picture the things described and to speak the words distinctly, and to let the emotion come through on its own." The method works beautifully.

The Thing with Feathers: The Surprising Lives of Birds and What They Reveal About Being Human
The Thing with Feathers: The Surprising Lives of
An entertaining and profound look at the lives of birds, illuminating their surprising world—and deep connection with humanity. Birds are highly intelligent animals, yet their intelligence is dramatically different from our own and has been little understood. As we learn more about the secrets of bird life, we are unlocking fascinating insights into memory, relationships, game theory, and the nature of intelligence itself.The Thing with Feathers explores the astonishing homing abilities of pigeons, the good deeds of fairy-wrens, the influential flocking abilities of starlings, the deft artistry of bowerbirds, the extraordinary memories of nutcrackers, the lifelong loves of albatrosses, and other mysteries—revealing why birds do what they do, and offering a glimpse into our own nature.Drawing deep from personal experience, cutting-edge science, and colorful history, Noah Strycker spins captivating stories about the birds in our midst and shares the startlingly intimate coexistence of birds and humans. With humor, style, and grace, he shows how our view of the world is often, and remarkably, through the experience of birds. You’ve never read a book about birds like this one.

Feathers and Faces: Adele Renault
Feathers and Faces: Adele
Adele Renault is an artist with a deft touch for that which most might find commonplace. From pigeons to people, she focuses her artistry on realistic depictions of ordinary city residents.On canvas, on our walls and in our homes, her feathered friends are wildlife and pets feral yet tame; wary companions that sing to us in silent flights of fancy yet perched in waiting, alive and uncontainable, readyfor an open window to make their escape. So present and personable, they dovetail perfectly with her human portraiture, proffering a sense that her paintings of people, rendered with the same attention and loving careas her birds, are perhaps too like all of us, curious birds themselves.To witness Adele turn the entire side of a building into a work of art is truly something to behold. Her ability to attack, to create with such exacting ferocity is in and of itself a piece of performance art

The Wonder of Birds: What They Tell Us About Ourselves, the World, and a Better Future
The Wonder of Birds: What They Tell Us
A fascinating investigation into the miraculous world of birds and the powerful—and surprising—ways they enrich our lives and sustain the planetOur relationship to birds is different from our relationship to any other wild creatures. They are found virtually everywhere and we love to watch them, listen to them, keep them as pets, wear their feathers, even converse with them. Birds, Jim Robbins posits, are our most vital connection to nature. They compel us to look to the skies, both literally and metaphorically; draw us out into nature to seek their beauty; and let us experience vicariously what it is like to be weightless. Birds have helped us in so many of our human endeavors: learning to fly, providing clothing and food, and helping us better understand the human brain and body. And they even have much to teach us about being human in the natural world. This book illuminates qualities unique to birds that demonstrate just how invaluable they are to humankind—both ecologically and spiritually. The wings of turkey buzzards influenced the Wright brothers’ flight design; the chickadee’s song is considered by scientists to be the most sophisticated language in the animal world and a “window into the evolution of our own language and our society”; and the quietly power...

Assessment of lead contamination in Pigeons from Lahore, Pakistan: Analysis of feathers and muscles of Blue Rock Pigeons by using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer
Assessment of lead contamination in Pigeons from Lahore,
In this text the heavy metal (particularly lead) contamination in the Blue Rock Pigeons through their feathers or muscles and the effects of the lead contamination in the body are under scrutinized. Heavy metals are those metals which have certain toxic or poisonous effects in living bodies. A great concern all through the world is heavy metal contamination in living animals including birds. High concentrations of heavy metals play an important role in fluctuating and disturbing the nervous control of organism and rest of body systems. Birds have a significant role in the ecosystem. In this research pigeons are chosen as bio-indicator. The lead resources, transport mediums and contamination areas are discussed in my present study. The lead metal contamination in the living pigeons is through feathers and oral pathway, absorbed or intake material containing lead contamination leads to serious health related problems in the living organisms.

It is also suggest if one (feather) can precisely indicate the possible level of contamination in the organism. Present work was taken up to develop a non invasive bio-indicator of air pollution. The advantage of this method is that the organisms are neither killed nor disturbed while collection of samples and exposure in both tissues can be monitored periodically.
