I was walking home from an appointment in my town today when I walked past two quite low trees, about 3-4 metres tall. In the tree furthest away from me, there were two LARGE wood pigeons, happily nibbling away on the buds.

However, in the other tree there was another, smaller wood pigeon. It has landed a few seconds before but was settled and sitting down. When I went in front of the tree it stuck it's neck up and stared at me. Then, when I had passed the tree, cursing myself about my lack of camera, I looked back, I saw the wood pigeon turning around to CARRY ON STARING AT ME :eek: :confused: :eek: :mad:!

Is that normal wood behavior? I taught myself a lot about woodies, but I never heard of them turning around to specifically follow a human. Was a Common Wood Pigeon (Columba Palumbus), in England, UK.

Good sayings should be oft repeated ! :)

That's pretty funny, Woody ~ maybe that Woodie knew you from somewhere ! Perhaps you once met at a party ????

Nah, I''ve never met it before, I think.
However, it could be the one I rescued, in which case it may recognise me (It would have had to loose a lot of weight to look like that though)

Anyways, about the used saying, do I have to change it, or can I keep it?

like being the operative word here.

Serious, Do you have copyright on the qoute? I would have thought you would be complimented someone wants to share your saying around. I can't understand the problem here.

They did find one of their own, It just happened to be the one you wrote. Just as they would if they searched the net or books for a different qoute, Quotes are generally shared in this way and thats how they become well known, If you don't want yours to be shared, Maybe it shouldn't be published.

It sounds interesting to me, I am not knowledagble on woodies, Wonder if it was rehabbed and released hence its tameness towards humans.

Anyone else more knowledagble and maybe in the UK? got anything to say on the subject?? John?

With respect, Evan, this really isn't any of your business, is it?

The OP asked a question, to which I replied and that's that.

Sorry for stating my opinion on a matter which is on a public forum.
But I am right though aren't I?, you can request he move it but I am sure its not against any laws or rules.
I am not aware that anybody suggested it is against any laws or rules, so there is nothing to be 'right' about.

End of story.

It may be that the woodie was being wary. They are generally pretty skittish, but a younger one (which it sounds like) especially may not feel prompted to take flight unless it perceives some behavior as directly threatening. Just a guess.

Try reading the rules, OK? I will delete what is unacceptable according to forum rules as will any mod who happens to see it.

That is not simply deleting something I personally disagree with.

Here is one rule you guys need to remember:

3. We require civil and ethical conduct on all forums. Personal attacks on other members, or pigeons.biz itself or its moderators and administrators, will not be tolerated. If asked, you will yield to the requests of the forum moderators and administrators.
Now kindly drop this argumentative stuff, it serves no good purpose.

Oh god. oh god. oh god.

My question about a staring wood pigeon.
I'll remove and change my quote signature John D.
Any chance you or anyone could give me a new one?

Read my post and tell me how a polite request is 'bullying', please.

Then apologize.
