homey pigeons in park slope

There is someone whistling to these pigeons on the roof.

The pigeons circle around and around him, and when they stray too far he whistles louder.

He keeps waving his flag as his flock swoops and turns.

If you look closely at the last picture you can see him.

When he whistles at them it looks like they are trying to back up - in mid air! - in response to his call. I watched them for over an hour.

Is he letting them out of his rooftop coop for "a fly?" I don't know, but thanks, pigeon-man. That was lovely.
