|It really was a wonderful day! |
The pigeons are super happy. The man who helped DH has mentioned that he knows a fellow that wants to get rid of some Old German Owl pigeons...they aren't up to show standards...so it looks like we're getting 12 more to keep those 2 company.
I had a shelf in the garage made out of 2 x 4's that I wasn't using so DH took it apart. Those five 2 x 4's were ripped and turned into ten 2 x 2's.
Wonder if chickens would be happy out there with the pigeons

|Lee Anne, how wonderful this is! I have seen that photo of the pigeon on your head before, but the coop story is new to me. Loved reading it. |
Oh, and the new show pigeons are so gorgeous!

|Thanks Nancy! The "show" pigeons are kind of rescues too...since they aren't up to show standards they would have been destroyed |
But now they're safe and happy!!

|Beauties! You're a peach for saving them.|
My neighbors aren't thrilled, but I feed the sparrows and pigeons every morning. They wait on the rooftops for me to come out at 8 am, and when they see the back door open, they zoom in. They know the routine. Bread cubes on the cement bench, then wild bird seed on the driveway. There must be close to 100 of them who eat at Nancy's every morning.
Throughout the day, whenever I open the back door there's a handful of sparrows and/or pigeons waiting for me. But I've also had visits from a couple of cardinals and wrens and finches. Oh, and squirrels. But I have peanuts for them sometimes.
The pigeons have landed on the bowl in my hand sometimes. I am a sucker for most any wild creature. Just like you are.

|What a wonderful story and bless you for taking care of those sweet birds.|
Love ALL the photos, except for maybe the umm....woops! Ouch!
I was thinking how odd that you were able to eat Thanksgiving outside as I knew you were from Canada and then duh, I remembered you all celebrate much earlier.
Great story, great photos, wonderful you...
