I've been to several places with walk-through aviaries - they are so neat!

Sounds like a wonderful place.
Tooter must love you very much to give it up and come back home.

Victor, got a chance to check out the zoo link. That is a great place. I am particularly charmed by the orangutans.

I am so sorry. I feel so much love for my guys, and know what it like to lose one. Give it a little more time. If he his hurt he may have to get better before coming home. Put up notices with the local vet, and rescue places as well as nearby gas stations and feed stores. Sending you prayers, Boni

Hi Boni Bird and Thanks for your kind words, but Tooter is safe and sound at home with us right now. He was gone and left for dead by me until one day after being gone for seven and one half months, he came back to us.



To briefly re-cap what transpired last July, I was outdoors feeding the outdoor squirrels(without my glasses) and I heard and saw a couple of pigeons on the roof area. I mentioned to my wife Bev that we had a couple of pigeon visitors on the side of the house.

While I was searching for my glasses, she went out, and I heard her yelling, "Victor it's Tooter!" I went out, not believing it could be him, as I left him for dead. I saw this pigeon that sounded like Tooter...pranced around like Tooter....and looked like Tooter. I climbed on my extension ladder and offered him my arm. He hooped on my arm right away. Bev began crying, and I recall her telling me as she cried, "Honey! it's him...Tooter has come back!"

Tooter is safe and home with us and our 7 other pigeons. Right now he is safe and sound sleeping in his coop with the others.


Welcome to pigeon Talk by the way!

Hi Victor,

Even knowing the full story your account of Tooter's return brought tears to my eyes.

Cynthia

Cynthia, it affects me the same way. I saw this thread this morning and my heart jumped into my throat thinking something had happened to Tooter. I am so glad he's snoozing away with his pals, all safe and sound.

Bless your hearts Cynthia and Maggie. I should post one more good picture of Tooter (after I clean out my pictures) and request that a moderator close this. I hate to think of anyone of my pigeon colleagues having an anxiety attack!

Good idea, Victor! Especially since statistics for my age group would indicate a heart attack in addition to an anxiety attack!

And I would certainly MISS being around the site to add a little humor and spice whenever...

LOVE, HUGS and SCRITCHES to ALL, Mr. Victor!

I was just going to suggest you close this thread. I too almost had heart failure this morning at 5:30 when I saw that VICTOR had posted to this thread. I almost was afraid to read it...........So, I think closing it is a good idea before we loose a beloved member of our forum over nothing........
I AM however glad everything is A-OK with Tooter..........

July 13th Our Lucky Day


This marks the anniversary that Tooter returned home to his family after a long seven and a half months away on his journey.

Here is a picture of him in his flight pen.

It is hard to believe that it has been a year now. A word of encouragement to those of you who have lost a beloved pigeon, please don't give up. Good things do happen.

I still tell him almost every day, "Welcome home Tooter!"

Tooter's return keeps hope alive and well in my heart and is a constant remineder that miracles do happen and when we least expect them
Seeing Tooter in his flight pen make me grim from ear to ear and warms my heart! Indeed, Welcome Home Tooter
