    Recently the new Pope stood in a window with two small children and then 2 Doves representing peace, were released, Look what happened.

    Neither of these two species are predatory and they don't typically travel or hunt together!
    It is as though they were there for a purpose, almost premeditated, if you look at how quickly the attack took place.

    fWould it be a sign if the same kind of birds had the same kind of interaction in a different context? Just because it happens in the presence of a Pope, it doesn't mean that it must have some supernatural significance. If the same thing had happened in the presence of Barak Obama...would it have the same significance attributed to it as suggested with the Pope's case?

    Pagan Roman armies looked at such events as omens of defeat or victory: and what is a Christian doing speculating on the kind of heathen divination that the Bible tends to frown upon?

    It would be easier just to say "it was all part of God's ineffable plan, but there is a naturalistic explanation for the featured bird behaviour:
    Why Birds Attacked the Peace Doves in Rome

    The National Geographic commentator said it best when he stated:

    It all seems to be a combination of a case of breeding by artificial selection going awry, and a case of avian colour discrimination (evolution by natural selection) working as expected. ;)

    If there is any sign to be read into the event, it is mainly a confirmation of the prepper's "Grey Man" Strategy. [winkthumb]

    Edit: Apparently "peace doves" being attacked by other birds at St Peter's Square is not a unique phenomenon. Evidently it seems to have happened on previous occasions

    One gets to wondering whether world peace might not be better served by throwing a white robed pope off the Vatican balcony instead of white plumaged peace doves? I'm sure that PETA would approve! ;)
