Pigeons making site-specific art

At the De Young museum in San Francisco, I saw these two pigeons making a nest. The male would go off, painstakingly search for a leaf, and then tuck it under his partner. Clearly they’d been at it for a while, and had made a nice little nest, visually differentiated from the stones in the courtyard.

The log-like object that the pigeons are nesting next to is Pacific Crossing, a bronze by Yoshitomo Saito. I like to think that the artist would approve of the pigeon’s contribution.
