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.
