From the

Diary as of 11/9/ – 11/20/08

11/9/08 It’s the 45th day now – Emma still sitting on the plaster eggs. This is a record!!! I only hope that she is not going crazy and needs a shrink because these damn eggs won’t hatch…. 😥

11/10/08 Jimi’s back sleeping in pigeon city. He had a little fight with Pete but won. Wonderful Jimi….

11/11/ – 11/20/08 After we had a couple of “warm” days again I put out the bath again. The birdies LOVED it.

Many little things happen these days but our pigeons are still here, coming each morning to get their seeds and Jimi sleeping in pigeon city from time to time. Funny thing is when the weather is bad he prefers to sleep in pigeon city where he has a warm, dry appartment. He knows what’s good for him.

We have various visitors in the meanwhile – participating in having breakfast and feeding from the pots. Pete is very busy to make sure that everyone knows that this is HIS home and HIS feeding pots. So the others take advantage whenever Pete is busy with someone else or away. Funny scenes to watch here from time to time…

Emma is still sitting on the eggs. Slowly I have the suspicion that she enjoys having her peace, while sitting in her own little villa. From time to time she gets up, does her droppings on the oppositie building which really amuses me because it’s an office building from company I cannot stand – so I have my own little gloating.
Emma is a very clean little mommy. She never sh….s near the nest. Isn’t that sweet?








  1. she is cute! 🙂

  2. Petra this is adorable! How in the world do you know which is Willy and which is the female? hmmmm Just to tell you that I have always loved tweety birds, but I am just barely beginning to paint them. Maybe one day I’ll add another kind of bird to my repertoire. These photos are spectacular!

  3. Hi Veronica, when you watch animals over such a long time as we do, daily, since March this year – you can identify them all from little marks, behaviours, size etc. and soon you can realize which one is male and which female. Each of them has a different personality and character!!
    I am happy that you like the photos. I have collected several thousands in the meanwhile I think….
