How does Elmo know who is male and who is female? This is the question that plagues my mind. If we have a male visitor come round to see us, Elmo is very happy and shows off. If we have a female visitor come round, Elmo will attack her at some point to warn her not to come too close. But how in the world does he know who’s female and who’s male? I just cannot understand it. Do we give off different smells? Colours? Is he noticing the fact that human females have breasts and human males don’t? Is it the length of our hair? Is it the voice difference? … Maybe it is a certain aura we emit that pigeons can see? Or maybe Elmo is just that clever that he can tell the difference – just like humans can tell the difference – since Elmo thinks he’s a person. I wish I could ask him because it seems so amazing that Elmo can tell the difference. What a clever boy! :)

Ps. I did ponder this question a while back in Gay pigeon.
