I had my first "There's something on the runway, go around"...

So, the other day I took a friend up in N748SP (C-172S). We took off from 13L at RHV and headed towards South County. I let her fly, then we did a steep turn. I noticed the weather was deteriorating, so we headed back to RHV for some landings. I landed on 13L and taxied back for another trip around the pattern. It got kind of busy...I was #3 for landing behind a Citabria and another Cessna. Tower gave me 13R and so I setup for that.

When I get over the fence I notice something on the runway, what it is I am not quite sure. As I get closer, I notice that it's a ton of pigeons! They're all just chillin'...I'm like "yeah...go around".

I always thought my first "something on runway" go-around would be something more dramatic, like a person, plane, vechile, deer, etc...not a damn group of pigeons!

.8TT, 156.5 total to date.
