In More Bird News...



Birdboy's flock continues to grow. The latest addition has been pigeons--last fall we got some rollers (which are kinda like homing pigeons but perform occasional aerobatic feats), but I'm still finishing their way cool loft, which is designed to be both ornamental and functional, with trap doors so they can come and go, a big arched window, and, up top, a tower where they can hang out. Just the other day, a pair of the rollers' eggs hatched, and we get to watch the teeny chicks develop--they'll be flying a just a few weeks! Right after that a friend have us a couple pure white homing pigeons--they look fantastic wheeling through the blue skies overhead.

Hey MN--The loft, or in proper latin Columbarium, is a peaceful spot indeed. I love their cooing.

Carol--They're cutie pies. It's utterly amzing how quickly they mature-today they're actually looking like birds, not plucked chickens.
