Pigeon Feeding Eccentrics

Pauline, one of my work associates, identified with my pigeon frustration story and explained that here in the UK there is a brand of person called the Pigeon Feeding Eccentric. I think she coined the phrase.

I could immediately picture the type. There is definitely one of these PFE's providing our resident pigeon and his ladies with plenty of dry lentils and rice – directly below our bedroom window.

The following is a link to a New York Times article from October 2006 called Pigeon Wars. It even mentions pigeon feeding and eccentrics in the same sentence. I think we’re on to something.
