Here's the female pigeon my dad kept in a cage for the night with food and water. She ate some of the food and drank some of the water and was raring to go the next day and took off. My dad (lives in an apartment above my garage) released her before I could get the numbers down from the bands. That said I doubt this will be the last time we get a banded pigeon to show up.

  She was in a bad mood today.
People walking by her all day..  .

That is really cool. I've seen them nest in the darnedest places!

How many of you know that the robin was originally strictly a woodland bird that has adapted to open spaces?

We watched this male Downey feeding his offspring this morning.


They were at the feeder for 30 minutes or so. Fun to watch.

I have a homing pigeon resting in a cage in my garage with feed and water tonight. It got caught in some mono line I put around my ponds to keep the Great Blue Herons out. It has at least one band and I will look it up tomorrow. Is wet and exhausted.

This is not the first time a homing pigeon that has hung around my property. Anybody have any ideas why they land here? Looks similar to their destination? The four ponds have something to do with it?

We find they hang out here for a few days and then fly off.

the storms probably messed it up.  it mite still find its way home. since you fed it, it just mite come back again.  they arent like wild birds.  i have heard of them hanging around for several days.
some fishermen tell lies,  this one doesnt need to

Thanks for the response. Just wish I could have seen the band numbers to see where she came from.

We raise and harvest our own pigeons, 30 years now. One of my favorite proteins when in a barley soup with parsley and mushrooms. Meat is fall off the bone.

Last thing my gramps requested before passing away...... might be mine too.
