#002 dora the wood pigeon


"Dora is a loveable and very friendly bird with a habit of falling asleep at inappropriate times throughout the day. Think of her whenever you receive a call from a suspiciously unknown number, and especially one that when you answer there’s no one there. Chances are Dora could be quietly snoring into her head-set at the other end of the line. You got off lightly if you caught her on a snooze, because when she’s awake she has the most persuasive coo around and you’d have probably found you’d bought extra roof insurance you didn’t know you even needed, before you got a chance to hang up." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
