WOOD PIGEONS

Post by nuthatch » Tue Aug 05, 2014 8:09 am

On Monday and yesterday about 20.15 a wood pigeon came to the empty window feeding cup three times - it's the one they usually come to in the mornings.

Last night I felt so sorry for it :laugh: that I filled it up but didn't notice if it visited again before dark.

I'm wondering if it has been having a nap and waking up thinking it was morning :laugh:

I've got three. Sometimes they come individually, sometimes two together and occasionally all three together.

Drinking is fine. Don't let them bathe as they leave a scum :)

I've never seen them on the window sill in the evening before :laugh:

One turned up at 20.15 on the dot again yesterday :)

A pair of Woodies have spent the day setting up home in the Ash tree in my neighbours front garden. IMO it is a far from ideal nesting site given the frequency of vehicles and pedestrians that pass right under the tree on a daily basis. If they persist I will try and get a decent picture :photo:

If they do settle in, Jacksparrow, it will be fascinating to watch their progress :nod:

Disaster :( sometime during the forenoon the wind has blown the half built nest out of the tree and onto my drive :windy:
I will be watching tomorrow to see if any attempt to rebuild .
