Drop in at Marina Beach to feed the winged visitors

pigeons at the beachAgainst the backdrop of the early morning sunrise, here is a sight walkers to Marina Beach cannot miss – the thousands of pigeons that fly in to feed on the grains on the sand there.

Though there is not much known on when or who started feeding the pigeons, for more than seven years now several groups have been taking turns to make sure these birds always have something to nibble on.

They eat everything from corn and wheat to seeds and grains, so stop by for a few minutes and throw them a handful of grains the next time you go for a walk. It will be an unforgettable experience.
