I mostly agree with other people.  None of them seem very memorable to me.  I
like the top left one the most.  The whole "make it look like a speech bubble"
thing seems silly to me.  I feel like it severely detracts from the
memorability of the logos, and makes them look less pidgeon-like.  Is there
any reason all the logos are solid colors rather than with texture and color

Ever since Sean mentioned the Goodfeathers I think I've been hoping for a logo
that looked like them.  Can we just license this: :-)

I searched some stock photo sites and found two images that I like.  I really
like the style of the first one.  And the second one is how I picture a
stereotypical pidgeon in my mind.

Can we put him on hold while we explore other options, and then if we don't
find anything we like we could fall back to him?  That'd be my vote.
