I am really sorry for not posting earlier but I had so much to do. But the diary is not lost. I kept it for myself manually with some keywords. Now I am writing this up piece by piece. There is so much to tell….
Diary from 5/4/08
I think there is a very limited time now where I can enjoy seeing pigeons growing up. It is sad on one side because to watch these little buggers growing up was a great joy and sooo funny sometimes. On the other hand I know they are doing very well and they soon will have everything a pigeon needs in life – wings to fly, a good eye for food, an alert system and y very watchful eye.
Although both buggers are picking like crazy already for a couple of days – today I observed that they are picking up food such as oats, corn, rice, lentils, sunflower seeds (which they both love best) and actually eat it. Sometimes I think they are both some chickens instead of pigeon babies with their scratching all day long. So they already know what’s good for them – great feeling!
The parents still continue to feed them – apparently they get some green food as well – such as grass or plant parts – I don’t know – but their droppings become very green then and this obviously does not come from eating seeds only. But I am not sure about this.
And this is Joey cleaning up, being very busy as you can see…
