A Pigeon on my Head…

From the

Diary as of 7/27/2008

Winnie and Jimi start coming into the living room. They are very curious now and soooo cute. It is such a great joy to watch how they examinate everything that’s in their reach.

I have started to whistle and you would not believe it but Jimi flew on my arm. A little later Winnie had to copy her brother and came on my arm as well. This is so adorable and I just feel happy happy happy….

Each morning it’s playing time now and the babies are very trusty. Even when the parents are giving warning signals on the balustrade – because a crow is flying near by or sitting on the opposite building – both babies come running inside to hide here instead of in the corner of the balcony.

And both babies consider my back as something nice to climb on …

and Jimi is the cheaky of course – who considers my head to be a kind of scenic point…while Winnie takes a little snack 😯

And also these days we had some visitor again on the balcony: Aunt Frieda, the black beauty. Look – she is really pretty:

Btw – I am not worried at all to be so close to the babies now as I know that they will loose their closeness as soon as they start to go their own way and I will not be able to touch them any more, which is really good because they shall be and remain free feral pigeons!!

Pictures like the following will soon be history:

  3. Wow, I am going through something similar. A week ago my cats somehow got hold of a young pigeon. I live on the 8th floor and I guess he flew in. I kept him in a clean cat carrier and cleaned his wounds for a week. When it looked like the skin was healing, I put the box (open) and bird out on the balcony and closed him there with the window open. After I returned from work, I didn’t see him. The next morning I found him hiding out there. That was when he climbed on my arm. This evening he climbed on my shoulder and really seemed to enjoy it. After such a short time with him, I am quite surprised! I wonder how I can get him to live with my cats.

  4. Hi Patty – I think that will not work – cats and pigeons won’t live together in peace. The cats will try again to get him and a pigeon has nothing to defend himself. A parrot would be something different – my sister had 2 parrots and 2 cats – they – the cats – had a hell uva respect for the parrots’ beaks. A pigeon does not have that power in his beak…
