Folks, hope everyone and their pigeons/doves are doing well. Has been awhile since I've posted. Wanted to share a very very cute story about my beloved pigeons, Pete (hen) and George.
Yesterday, George was in the mood for love, and started hollering to the heavens for his beloved Pete. She flew into the cubby, and George laid down on his belly and commenced to pitching woo -- a little soft cooing along with a little fluttering of his wing. I decided to play "wingman" -- pun intended -- and help George out, so I went to the cubby and started singing "Lady" by Kenny Rogers in a sort of kiddie cartoon voice. George looked up at me, then promptly decided to join in -- he started cooing along with me and bowing his head toward Pete. She responded by walking over and giving Georgie "Sinatra" some kisses and tender preening. It was a very sweet and tender thing to watch.
Pete and George may fuss and squabble from time to time, but in the end, they are truly mates for life.
