Come Fly with Me!


Okay, so I'm crazy about birds! Why? Because they can fly! They are free!!! These pigeons have been coming in for breakfast for the last 3 years. They each have their own names and distinct personalities. They are so strong and tough, but I lose several a year. It's sad, but the good news is, they nearly always have offspring. I can tell by their markings who their parents were. They come to my window as babies, though they look like adults. The babies just squeak and squall and they are smaller. They also have to learn how to leave when they are through eating. They learn fast after flying into the closed window a couple times. Anyway, this is my world every morning. I hope you can see a glimpse of what I see in these wonderful, gentle birds.

Charming video! My mother loved birds. One Christmas I bought her a bird feeder for her window with a one way window so the birds wouldn't see her. Slowly all types of birds discovered the feeder. I see you have only pigeons which is probably because they are the least afraid of humans. My mother ended up with all kinds. Problem was they made a terrible mess on the patio. Finally, we just kept the hummingbird feeder. However, you might want to look into the device and see if other birds are as interesting as pigeons. Good luck!

I'm so glad you're reposting everything. They show up on my feed as new posts. This made me cry all over again...I saw the other one I commented on first.
thank you. I need this glimmer of joy right now.
