Saigo and Friend

This Sunday morning, I was walking to the International Volunteer Center to sit in on a Toastmasters meeting. As I neared the Kagoshima Prefectural Museum, I noticed a crowd of tourists standing in front of Houzan Hall, looking at the statue of Saigo Takamori across the street. Then I noticed the statue. These guys are notoriously camera shy when they're over at the Kotsuki river, but this time, he just ignored everyone.

In America, you get pigeons.

I have seen these birds near the water in Montreal, Canada, and have managed to get a few photos of them, but they are quite shy and so still! The first time I saw one I wasn't even sure, as it wasn't moving at all, trying not to be seen. Nice blog.
