Pigeons

Okay, I know Pigeons aren’t everyone’s favorite bird, but I like to observe all nature and its activities. Mom and I observed Pigeon activity at the motel we stayed at in Arizona in March, 2006. We were on the second floor, these pigeons were below the roof & above the third floor. This mother is feeding her little fuzzy baby – it’s too cute!

She regurgitates into her babies’ mouths. Here’s a better shot of her, but less of her fuzzy babies:

And here’s a better photo of one of her fuzzy babies:

There’s a guy that cleans the pool area and wipes down the furniture every day – I’m sure he cleans up a lot of pigeon poop. I know that’s nasty, but I’m kind of glad they let these pigeons live there.

    What are those metal spikes? Pigeon guards?
    They sure seem to be working. 🙂

    For sure! That and the metal screen behind her. They just seem to make for a cozier, more stable nest. Score 2 for the birds, 0 for the humans.
