Reminds me of a subway trip once about fifteen years ago somewhere in the neighborhood of London (UK), out toward one of the surrounding areas where the trains aren't underground all of the time, but go underground from time to time, possibly down in the direction of Croyden. In any case, a pigeon entered the car at one of the stops along the way where there was open sky above, proceeded to look for crumbs to eat without the least apparent concern for the doors closing & the train starting up, plunging into tunnels and out again, and rod several stops, and then exited again at another stop in a manner that suggested that it knew exactly where it wanted to get off, never displaying any obvious anxiety or concern about the movement, being enclosed in a space it couldn't leave from much of the time, or the movement of people through the car or on and off. The train wasn't particularly full at the time, but it was nevertheless a very intriguing sight.
