Several years ago my son rescued a pigeon which he found lying in the parking area of the complex he manages. It probably hit a window and was stunned. He put it in a box and brought it home. When it recovered we realized first of all that it was quite tame and secondly that it wasn't a 'wild' pigeon but rather some special breed. Conveniently we had a lovely big bird cage and it has lived there ever since. As you can see it doesn't mind being handled and my grandson has fun with her.( as much fun as you can have with a bird!)
Oh yes, we found out it is a her because last year she started laying eggs.
Incidentally, my GS's face is purposely cut off because my DIL prefers that the grands not be clearly pictured on my blog. But at least you can see his adorable smile!!
DH is the one who most often fills the bird's food dish and maybe that's why she follows him around. Here she is sitting on his drill while he's fixing the picnic table.
Thanks for visiting today.
