Bwog just received the following Shocking Report from Lecture Hop editor Pierce Stanley, who’s currently staked out in Butler:
“There is a pigeon in the reference room right now, flying around trying to get out and walking alongside the books on the walls. Everyone is sort of watching and laughing.”
Quickly! What should we name him? Stanley suggests Webster, “in honor of one of the most seminal reference books ever.”
And if you’re in Butler and you have a camera, snap a picture of this delightful avian distraction and send it to email@example.com.
UPDATE 9:14 PM: Saakashtweety it is!

Or maybe just a tip for future malthusians in the library?
@Sprinkles Pigeon = Rock dove = Columba livius
A pigeon should be the true mascot of Columbia – a tough, tenacious thing that’s a lot smarter than people think.
That whole thing where they peck at cigarette butts is just a ruse.
