Stupid people killing babies


hello,i know where a pigeon nest is but sadly im not the only one.there are little children climbing up that tree all the time.i usually tell them off but i dont know what happens when im away.the parents are only making the nest and there are no eggs yet but im scared that the children will destroy the little family.how else can i get them to leave the nest alone? the tree id in this big bush.could i place the nest in a little bit different branch so the children arent able to see it? i really love pigeons and i want them to grow up properly so HELP ME IM BEGGING YOU

These kids are doing this to get your attention. confront their.parents about this iincident. or make a way to keep them away, for instance, chicken wire were their feet would be.

pigeon girl


thank you ever so much for yor reply.yeah,chicken wire sounds like a great idea and hopefully i will get it all sorted out with the parents of the kids.just about 3 hours ago i looked out of my window to see the 2 pigeons bringing more sticks to their nest.i will keep informing you about how the pigeon family is getting on.tomorrow,i am planning to go to one of the childrens parents.fingers crossed that this will stop and the pigeons will be left alone in future.again,thank you Maria

Talk nicely to the parents; do not blame the children..childern will always be children..; just show concern for the pigeon family.
Before talking to the parents you can try it with kids first: you can give some candies to the kids or show some pics of baby pigeons.. and talk to them if they would like to be the guardians/protectors of these pigeons who will soon have their babies. Tell them that they can choose names for the squabs and so on...Hope it works ..kids soften up on this stuff.

Ask them if they know the parents pigeons names..if not ask them to baptieze them and give them a cute name they are attched too;;like Mickey Mouse, Bambi etc..Tell them a cute story with a happy end with a pigeon you know (make it up). lol than would have been fun if i were you.

you may just want to keep an eye out and leave the nest there. or take the nest down and hope they go elsewhere in a safer place away from these kids.. maybe the kids are used to eating pigeon's eggs and hunting them.?

You could just chase the pigeons away, and not let them build a nest there. Eventually they will find a better place to nest.

The egg hasn't really even started to develop yet. If you throw the nest away, and the egg, and keep stopping them from building a new nest, they will realize that it isn't safe to nest there. If you are persistent, they will leave.

Maria,

Jay3's advice is actually right on.
If you feel bad about throwing out an undeveloped egg, imagine how you'll feel about the babies being harmed by the kids, or abandoned by the parents due to the constant harassment. If these kids are curious about the nest now, just imagine the situation once the babies hatch. Act now, while you still can.
