Salt and Pepper couple


Well..my buddy has found a lady and she is as close to completely black as he is to toally white. The two have been cooing over each other outside my window for quite a while. He doesn't even come over for his treat. Looks like love to me.

Well so much for your bond with that pigeon! I must say that they are one of the most beautiful couples that I have seen. Maybe you should enter them in the contest.

Ebony and Ivory...Love it! A beautiful couple, too

Paul, do not be too shocked if their genders are not what you think

Nesting time will be coming soon to NYC, let us know if they begin to show up separately ... if/when they do, take note of which one comes by in the early a.m. & later p.m. and which one shows up during midday. Then you'll be able to tell who's what for sure
(Unless you catch them courtin in the meantime...:~)
Best wishes
Carol

Friendship continues


For weeks my buddy turned up for his treat about 4:30-5:30 pm either because of a simple wave by me or automatically sitting outside my door. Well, the walk outside my door and/or the stare in the apartment from my window sill is the norm. Because construction guys were outside nowadays, he's been showing up later. I had a real surprise when at about 7:30pm while watching television I looked out the window and there he was. Today I noticed something I hadn't seen before, he is now sitting in a little tunnel made by my stacks of window boxes and plant containers on my terrace. I don't know if this has been going on for a while or not. I may have a room mate.

The couple visits regularly now


Well, the ivory and ebony couple come for their treat together now. My white knight normally chases off any other birds that try to horn in on his dish but now he brings his black beauty with him. The now feel comfortable coming to the sill of my door to the terrace as long as I don't make any fast moves. I can be very close and watch ( a foot or so) but I have to keep very still. The both seem to love regular Quaker Oat Meal. I tried corn but they really don't like it.

I still can't get over how I am totally captured looking at my white buddy up close. Even though he's dropped by with his feathers mussed up, the heavy rain here in New York seems to have brought him back to a neat, white and very sleek bird. For me he seems a lot more slim than most pigeons. But he and black beauty seem to be a book-end pair.

They absolutely compliment each other-what a couple, quite awesome to see them both in the wild together.

Thank you for offering them shelter and food, how much do you charge them for room and board?
