Hi John,


Well, even though these parents are quite young, they seem to have been doing a very nice job in every way.

The Nest was well chosen for location, is VERY well hidden unless one gats behind the draped cages in front of the Bookcase...and the top of the old Hat was genious! Having some smattering of Feathers and odds and ends as gathered Nesting materials for it...of course now, the dented in hat top is only enough 'cup' for one Squab now, so, at any given moment, one or another of them is in it, and the other two, somewhere else on the shelf.

The Babys are about ohhhhhhhh, 16 or maybe 18 days old or so now, and very well fed indeed.

Do you have a video cam you could set up to "spy" on the nest and see what's going on? Curiouser & curiouser...

Discover, Dezirrae??? Nope...they know all about teleportation...usually by "seed" holes...just ask Mr. Squeaks and the other Super Power Pigeons (SPPs)!

However, in Phil's situation, I really don't think teleportation was involved, although I wouldn't rule it out completely.

Phil's Pigeon Palace has all kinds of neat places to have babies and the word is spreading!

...I was hearing 'Crickets' somewhere in the Front Room this morning...very faint, but definite...when I tried looking, all went silent...

I better root around there I guess...


Oh! I forgot to make some pictures...I will see about that shortly...


Phil,
Writing to you from the
"Squab Palace" and 'Peep-O-Rama', and all round Poopatorium...

I've been following this thread w/ a great deal of anticipation and a great big smile . Hope you don't have too many more secret nesters! Could be a bit exciting once everyone decides to fly.

mmmmm, Phil...personally, I think your pijies are messing with your mind!

I can see their conversation now: "OK, listen up guys...first couple who successfully hides their kids from the 2-legged one, until they can leave the nest, gets the prize!"

Shi
& Squeaks (who knows but can't say 'cause he's too busy laughing!) and, yes..pigeons CAN laugh!

"seed" holes - I love that Shi... and the visualization of SPPs is just TOOOO funny!

Phil -- I can't wait to see the pictures. I think Shi is right - the word is spreading about all the neat places to have babies... wondering where this round of "crickets" will lead you
