A bit off Topic...

You may be wondering where my new posts are? Well - I am bit short of time currently. See what I am busy with:



So far about interior design - LOL. These are Peppi and Pina (from Peppina), the babies of Willy and Winnie, who again are the kids of Emma and Pete, a pigeon couple that lives on our balcony since last year. Since this year Willy and Winnie are living on our balcony as well. And once a year they are allowed to have babies – all the eggs both couples are laying are replaced by plaster eggs – otherwise….

This is an adventure I would recommend to anyone who loves animals and especially birds. It is unbelievable how intelligent and adaptive these birds are. Their personalities and behaviour is amazing and I consider myself as a very lucky person to have been given this gift.

Since last year I write a diary and documentary about our pigeon family with lots of photos, slideshows and little videos. If you would like to check this out – here it is and you will love it.

Pigeon Tales

Why am I keeping these little buggers inside? Because a very evil bastard pigeon came a couple of days ago and nearly scalped little Pina and wounded Peppi. I found both babies bleeding like crazy, with deep puncture wounds in their little heads. That foreign pigeon wanted to steal the nest and tried to kill our babies. This I could not let happen so I took them inside…

You can read the whole horror story soon on my pigeon blog. It is scary.

So many amazing things I have learned about feral pigeons in the meanwhile, how extremely intelligent they are and how adaptive. If you want to know more about this all with many funny stories check out my blog Pigeon Tales. You won't be disappointed but surely surprised...

Additionally I am adding a video here so that you can see yourself what I am talking about...

I didn't know pigeons attack others' nests. I thought crows do that.

Nicolette, believe me it does happen. I would have never thought this myself!
