Pigeon perch

At the stroke of the eleventh hour, the birds fly away. At 11:01 they are back on their favorite roost at the Athens County Courthouse clock tower. This flock of pigeons has been a tradition to Athens for a long time. They swoop hither and yon in the skies above Court Street most of the day. But they always end up perched on the clock tower where they enjoy a good view of Athens.
