From Colorfully Dyed Pigeons to Death by Pigeon Poop

Often classified as rodents or "sky rats," pigeons rarely ever get the credit they deserve. They are as much a part of city life as taxis and coffee shops and should therefore be accepted for the role they play in urban scenery.

Known for pooping on your car and balcony, pigeons also provide enjoyment for old ladies who feed them in the park as well as children who love to chase them around. Because they are so much a part of metropolitan life, pigeons have actually influenced artists and designers alike, inspiring projects such as pigeon-inspired outfits and even bird poop soap.

Love them or hate them, these feathered friends will remain an integral part of any city, so you might as well embrace pigeons. Stats for 35 Peculiar Pigeon-Inspired Products Trending: Older & Buzzing
