In this whimsical guide to pigeons commonly found in U.S. cities, science illustrator Mosco (Atlas Obscura Explorer’s Guide for the World’s Most Adventurous Kid) blends pigeon history, biology, identifying characteristics, and trivia sidebars. Mosco’s amusing yet accurate artwork enlivens this book, which tackles subjects like DNA, domestication, pigeon war heroes, and mating, nesting, and feeding.
