Whose eating out of who's hand?


Bill has learned to knock on my door. Well, maybe "flap" is a better word. After looking in the window and seeing I'm here he waits a minute or so to see if I'm coming. Then if nothing happens he flies a few feet off the ground and flaps his wings against the glass. Yes, he does make noise. I heard it one day from another room and couldn't figure out what the heck it was.

Today he actually ate out of my hand after several circles around and around the terrace. Although he still skits away if there is movement, this was a first. After eating everything I wondered if it wasn't he who had me eating out of his hand!!!!!!!!

This is Bill on watch outside my window.

I guess this is what I'll have to do. When I get to old and decrepit to get down and scrape poop in a loft, I'll just have to move into a big city that has pigeons and get some to feed.......that is so cool that he looks for you. He's really got the best of both worlds huh? Well, MOST of the time.

Bill knows he has a good thing going with you and has learned to trust you. Wish everyone felt the same way you do about the ferals.

Who's that knocking at my door


Well, here are some pics (actually stills made from video) of Bill making his usual 4 to 4:30 visit for goodies. He is still the only one of my neighbors I feed regularly since his girl friend Coo doesn't always show up. Believe me..when he flutters those wings against the window I hear it. Today I set up my video camera and caught both the knocking and the feeding.

They will be putting a new roof on outside my apartment soon so I'm not sure how that will disrupt the nearby brood. I'm thinking Bill will show up no matter what.

I believe one of my real fascinations with Bill are his neck feathers. On regular pigeons this is where the "rainbow" colors show even if the rest of the feathers are pure black. But on a white pigeon there is no rainbow of colors - just the tiny detail of pure white feathers that are fascinating ..especially when he extends or compresses his neck. The feathers slide beautifullyl over one another.

Well, I've almost used all my space for pictures. I'm glad you're enjoying my adventures with Bill and Coo.

Great pictures, Paul. You should enter one of them in the Feral category of our current picture competition.

As to running out of space for photos here .. perhaps you could just start an album on Webshots or Photo Bucket and place the pictures there and then just post us a link to them.

GREAT PICTURES, Paul!! Yep! I think Bill has you trained JUST RIGHT! LOL

I can SURE relate to his "attention" antics! When I leave for any length of time and put Squeaks in his home, he waits until I come home and then goes flapping berserk to be LET OUT...NOW!

The other day he REALLY put on a performance and was practically climbing the "bars!" Since he is "out" when I'm home, I THINK he might be a little spoiled!

We will always look forward to the "Adventures and Lives of Bill and Coo!"

Hugs and Scritches to ALL

& Mr. Squeaks

Paul, your pictures are wonderful, as always. There is a lot of trust shown by Bill in the second picture and it is very touching to me. How can one not love a face like his. Thank you.
