Not so friendly visitor


It"s winter in Wisconsin, and the not so welcome visitors have started to show up around and on my feeding station.

The difference between pets and pest is only on which side of the fence they're standing on. Keep your animals in your own property.

We nicknamed it "Peg Leg" because if you do a quick look, it doesn't appear to have a whole leg on the right side of it's body. I'm hoping the leg is just tucked behind it, although it is standing on a 4x4.

Is it an adult or young un?

Are you sure they will not be as prevalent say spring or summer? Do they migrate somewhere or just have lots to eat and they don't pay much attention with domesticated pigeons?


I don't understand why its safer in summer, I thought BOP has more hiding in the trees?

Not sure on age. During winter, BOP tend to accumulate around bird feeders because bird populations are greater near the feeders then in spring/summer when their natural food sources keep them dispersed more. Same reason you see BOP around lofts more often in winter. Also there are just more birds around from spring thru fall as migratory birds return. During winter, these same birds have left. And as many posters have been writing, BOP still take a lot of domesticate pigeons

I wish that were true. I wouldn't mind buying the extra seed. I am tired of finding red spots with feathers in the snow. Plus the song bird population has gone way down. I hope they are finding other feeders in our neighborhood.
