This fear was especially tough to face in Venice, Italy while studying abroad that semester. Piazza del Marco is known for the copious amount of pigeons that "beg" from tourists. As a city girl, birds are not always around, but I still flinch when birds of any kind (sea gull, pigeon, finch) swoops closer than I'd like. As in, visibly scouring and verbally wincing if they're too close for comfort... which is most of the time. Ugh, WHY must they fly so closely to humans when they have plenty of sky to utilize?!
