If there are hawks there, I didn't see any. There are very few pigeons in London these days.

I've always wondered why there are no pigeons in Trafalger Square. Hawks or poison, either one is good. 

Poison would end up killing the hawks too.

Never too old to have a happy childhood!

 Pigeon pie is good!Pigeon pie - Wikipedia                                                                                                                                                                Of course the first step in the recipe, like Elephant stew, is Get your pigeon - 18 gauge with birdshot solves that. The pie is actually pretty simple: take some plucked birds, simmer them until tender, pick the meat, make a thick gravy from the cooking broth, and bake it in a pastry crust. The use of the whole bird, stock, offal and all, to me, reeks of history, and resourcefulness. And, although it’s a little work to pluck pigeons, it goes rather quick if you skip the wings, which I was doing by clipping them off with a shears, that being said, plucking the birds is optional, and you can just discard the skin and feathers if you want. 

The end result? Fantastic. That being said, It’s hard to make braised poultry scented with porcini baked in a crust taste bad, and the squaby pie tastes a bit like duck, more or less."

's not against any religion....

I wouldn't be so sure.  Parishioners in the First Church of Coo-rist, one of the major pigeon religions, don't agree.

...of commuters annoyed by the pigeons residing in BART stations: https://www.npr.org/2022/07/19/1112219559/california-bart-station-hawk-pigeons

 

If that doesn't prove successful there is always this approach: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhuMLpdnOjY
