Why do pigeons sit on dangerous roads?


Why do pigeons sit on roads instead of in fields where there are safe?
Keith, Great Yellden


** Definitive **
Name: Thomas, Warlington
Qualification: Read it in a book
Answer: The tarmac on the road will hold on to heat far longer than the fields around it. When it gets dark, the fields will get cold quickly, so the pigeons will head to the road to keep warm.
