14 pigeons on the balcony playing…

From the

Diary as of 1/8/ 09

It is awfully cold:  -9 °C – but all were here, Willy and Winnie, Jimi and Hillary, Schlomo and Schlomska, Mr. Black and his girlfriend Igi and all the others.

In the meanwhile we have sometimes up to 14 piggies on the balcony because they desperately need good food and even more important – water. I have two drinking pots at different places on the balcony and they use it really frequently. You would not believe how much they drink especially druring this cold weather! Every couple of hours I have to refresh the water – which means I put hot water in because the water freezes again in about 3 hours. You would not believe how much they love to drink the hot water – it seems to be like hot soup to them. I have also watched them eating snow when they cannot reach water.

Today they are using the balcony as a playing ground again! It is so much fun to watch them how they love huffing pete. The old fool is always the sucker because he does not realize that the others trick him. There are sometimes 5-6 pigeons running after one another from one side of the balustrade to other and then back again. This can happen a couple of times right after another.

Then they try to climb on the flower pots or they are chasing themselves around in a circle. It is very funny and reminds of kids playing in the backyard.

Here are a couple of photo of Jimi, Hillary and Joey – they re always here – no matter what temperature or weather…











  1. I love it!

  2. I love you diary and your account of your balcony family. They really are spectacular.
    I’m so sorry you lost your little Randy.
    There’s nothing in the world like a baby Pigeon and it’s so painful to loose one.
    I’m a member of a Pigeon forum dedicated to educating, rehabing, honoring Pigeons feral and fancy. We would love to have you visit and join our Pigeon forum if you want and so I’m providing you a link.

    • Hi Charis, thank you so much for your kind comment. I have just been to your forum and seen the video about the king pigeon, which I have never heard about. I only know one thing – it is sick to breed pigeons for eating them, it is sick to breed pigeons so that they cannot survive in the wild and I find it sick to breed pigeons for living in a cage for their whole life. I will never understand this. I am sure I will re-visit your forum again and often.
