  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    So, I posted about a couple of pigeons that laid their eggs on my 6th floor balcony... I have since named them Desmond and Molly and refer to them as "my" pigeons. They (not so) cleverly nested in a place with zero cover from other birds and I've been trying to put up a non-invasive screen to...
  2. Training and Behavior
    funny thing with my pigeon today... i had brought this wrench from work to use it to fix my car. as im passing my pigeon,...he sees the wrench in my hand and he starts to growl at it... its a growl he very rarely does..it wasnt cooing or the noise he does when hes going to mate... so he flew on...
  3. General Discussions
    There is this horrid bridge. Loads of cars, and people who put bread for the resident pigeons in the bike lane. I don't really know, but I think people hit them on purpose. There are always tonnes of mutilated pigeons there. Just the other day, I had to walk under it, and there was some squished...

    Hi, I was just wondering about this issue. My dove likes to sit on the cables when I'm on the computer, and sometimes he likes to pick the microphone cable and throw the mic across the table. Is it dangerous for him to play with these cables? The cables would be: LAN cable, USB cables, and such.

    I came across this article on albino people dangers: “They cut my daughter quickly,” she said, making hacking motions with her hands. She had dropped out of school because of short-sightedness a common problem for albinos. - Mother of a killed Albino daugheter, A victim of Albino killings...
  6. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Two weeks (I think? Or just one, I don't remember) ago I saw a pigeon nest in the downtown of my city. It was placed a little bit low, on an abandoned thing, but it was so well built that I thought "Wow, I guess these babies won't need any help!". I guess I was wrong. There were two little birds...

    I am just sick. Yesterday I had the horrible experience of accidently stepping on my dove. He died right away. It was so awful, I just didn't see him underfoot and he was so tame he was not afraid. I couldn't sleep last night; I am haunted by the scene in my mind where he closed his eyes and...
  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello Friends, Well, I have my dear dove, now I've found my first downed feral. He's a near-grown squeaker. I found him last night, weak and unable to fly (though fully feathered except a few tiny pin feathers around the beak). I suspect dehydration, and, following AZWhitefeather's excellent...
  9. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi, I emailed George off-list and he gave me what I consider really good advice. I just thought I'd ask you all as well and see what you say. Our building and the next door building share a lightwell over the driveway (where 22 cars park in the back of our two buildings). Our building's fire...
