She came back there everyday and after a while the...

    Hi all, A pigeon nested on our 3rd floor balcony. I'm not sure how old the babies are now so I've included a picture, perhaps someone here will be able to gauge their age based on that. My boyfriend thinks three weeks, but I thought it was much less than that. The balcony is very secure and...
