The north west has so many squirrels, there’s so many nut trees. Longview Washington has a bridge for squirrels to cross a road

I find it disturbing. Moreover, they bastards shit everything and won't care at all.
Heck, they're annoying. But they're still a plus in the trees as long as they spare buildings from their excreta, I'll admit.
Lol, cats are obsessed with them.
Birds are the only dinosaurs we have left after the asteroid hit. Show some respect--their distant grandpa was T Rex. Plus, imagine a world without birds or bird songs. Rachel Carson wrote a book about it decades ago..."Silent Spring", about how DDT & other pesticides were killing off birds and other wildlife. Some birds are very intelligent. Parrots of course, but also crows and magpies. Birds also starred in a Hitchcock movie.

My city (London, Canada) doesn't have too many pigeons (there are some downtown) but we have a shitload of Canada Geese and Mallard Ducks. There's fucking billions of them (including in my pool).

Boise has a #$@!-ton of Canadian geese, mallard ducks, hawks, owls, eagles and falcons. I honestly don't recall seeing pigeons, though I'm sure they do exist.

The CBC did a very interesting program on pigeons on its prime time science program:
