Some of you may remember that I have two wild pigeons, Peter and Peggy, living in my eavestrough. They've been there for 7 years, same couple. A few days ago, another pair of pigeons tried to steal the nest. Peter took a beating but eventually the pair disappeared. Life seemed back to normal, except that Peggy decided Peter wasn't going anywhere and he was relegated to the back of the nest while she stood guard. That was two days ago. Yesterday I came home and Peter was gone. He did not return home last night, nor this morning. Peggy is busy tending to her two babies, without Peter. I know he has had the odd occassion when he didn't return home for a night, but this seems odd. Of course I am worried sick. In the event that something has happened to Peter (God forbid) will Peggy find another mate eventually?
