I have mentioned my visiting woodies before, so I thought I would show you two of the regulars. I love these birds, and my budgies look out for them - these pics are from bird room 2, bird room 1 is next door and has an adjacent view. Very chilly and windy here today, so I put in an extra scoop of pigeon food for them!
Thanks Lyn and Gaby! . Unfortunately it is impossible to get close shots of them as they always take off if I get too near. I have about 6 regulars. They always perch in the same place in a large tree in my garden, and spend about 30 minutes there to check the coast is clear before coming to their bowl. It's not just humans they have to look out for - my air space is regularly patrolled by buzzards, owls, rooks and seagulls, not to mention an annoying cat who will sneak up and take a swipe at them if he is around.
Thank you Deb. Nothing as exotic as a chipmunk here! I get squirrels, and a lone rat. I actually really like the rat - he is really cuddly, doesn't cause trouble and hasn't got friends and family to bring with him! I do wonder if he is a pet who escaped and survived.
Thank you Ana. Unfortunately they come in ones, twos or occasional threes - I have never seen them all together! They look hilarious when they are courting with their postulating and dancing! Even funnier when you see them trying to build a nest - they are completely hopeless at it!
Thank you Chirper. Shame they can't be clearer really!
They are beautiful I think pigeons are gorgeous birds it annoys me when people speak of them badly. It certainly does look wintery there I'm sure they appreciate the extra food so nice that they have somewhere to go where they are welcome
