Pigeons of Taj Mahal Hotel

During the coverage of the attack on the Taj Mahal hotel you might have noticed hundreds of pigeons flying around the hotel looking for their familiar resting spots. Thousands of these pigeons were scared away due to continuous explosions and fire during the 60 hours of siege. They were also missing out on the grains provided by the tourists.

Animal activists have worked with the police to set around 80kg of bird seeds around the hotel to bring these birds back to the area, and the pigeons are flying back their nests on this magnificent hotel.

As the tourists return to the area so will the pigeons. I hope these birds find an alternate nesting place during the repair work on the hotel.
