Why do pigeons face west when the sun starts to set? I just have been noticing this every time I go home from work, I see them perched up on wires and all facing the sunset. And of course, I shout to them "Good night pigeons, see you tomorrow"!

I've never noticed that. That's interesting.

From now on, if I'm out and about at that time I'll take notice. Thanks.

Oh well, if they face the sun fron sunrise to sundown, they're either solar-powered or the bird world's answer to sunflowers...
