Diary as of 4/26 – 5/4/2011
4/26 The weather has become a bit colder again after Easter was so beautiful!
Lucky is cooing the whole day and I suppose Emma will be soon leaving her plaster eggs. Both have already inspected their renovated nest which is now luxury class with a moss roof!!!!
4/27 I finally made some photos of “BrokenTail” as I re-called one of the black pigeons. Some raptor must have caught him because his tail really looks awful – totally tattered. His behaviour is also very nervous. It must be difficult for him to navigate with these hardly existing tail feathers. Poor fellow – what a trauma he must have.
Poor little fellow – he really has problems navigating and especially landing. It is amazing how birds can cope with this.
5/1 Weather has become quite ugly – rainy and cold. Not May-like at all….
5/2 It is still rainy and the birds are rummaging our balcony again – always with bad weather and cold temperatures.

5/3 Weather is still cold so Pina and Rudi went out flying only once during the late afternoon. It is so sweet: while we had our afternoon nap Rudi came into our bedroom and flew on the TV to indicate that he and Pina wanted their afternoon flight. So I got up and opened the door for them and off they went. They came back after a short hour again. How is that about communication????
5/4 Pina had little seizures today and did a little stargazing!!!! I am very worried. I hope it is only the stress of pre-egg-laying…
I heard her dancing around in the last days on one cardboard box beneath one of the chairs and misinterpreted as her playful behaviour but I think it was a seizure. Today I observered her doing some stargazing – definitely! She will be under very close monitoring now. I cannot stand the idea that my little angal darling is getting sick again… Heaven help!!!!!
