How pigeons took over the world
Seeing their meat as a protein source and their poop as the perfect fertilizer, humans brought pigeons into captivity as far back as 10,000 years ago.

Elizabeth Carlen and Joanna Moles track the feathery flier's rise to world domination. [Directed by Joseph Clark, Oh Studio, narrated by Alexandra Panzer, music by Salil Bhayani, cAMP Studio].
