Modern Day Falconry

Just took this in the Paddington train station.  The gentleman said the Great Horned Owl is used for taking care of the pigeons, of which there are many at Paddington.  I have seen the noble bird before at the station, but have not yet been fortunate enough to seem him in action.  One has hope.  I am not sure what “taking care of” exactly means, but I will let you know when I find out.
