    Just wanted to let you all know that I am so relieved to know that there are many people who love pigeons as much as I do. Lucky for me is the fact that my husband and daughter also share my love. We just moved to Henderson, Nevada in July 2006 and reside in an apartment complex behind a grocery...

    Hi everyone! Hope you all remember my story...Mr. Sephora, the Indian fantail I found in the road back in January. I am hoping for some immediate advice, since I'm aware that birds can go downhill rapidly when they are not eating. I have been putting down food for him the same way since...
