I really appreciate when I can meet someone who can take something despised and vilified and transform it into a beautiful focal point, braiding together natural history, human history, and urban ecology. Using humour and science, research and easily approachable illustrations Rosemary Mosco brings the Pigeon back into our awareness as a wonderful urban companion through the Anthropocene, instead of being viewed as a pest or vector to be avoided.
From her online comic, Bird and Moon, drawn by someone who really cares, through to her books, written and illustrated with humour and reverence, Rosemary enlivens the world, while welcoming us to pay more attention and more appreciation.
I got to talk with Rosemary about her own connections with nature, her award winning bird and moon comics, really diving deep into Pigeons (Columba livia) and her new book A Pocket Guide to Pigeon Watching.
