They’re Backkkkk…


YAY, my flock of Band Tailed Pigeons are back!  I guess the bad winter days must be on the way out.


I woke up this morning and was sitting at my dining room table sipping my coffee and felt something staring at me.

Looking up and over to my left I checked out my bird feeder that sits in front of my living room window on my deck and there they were!  Two Band Tailed Pigeons happily munching away and ‘eyeing’ me suspiciously.

They must remember me a little bit, as last year they would have flown off as soon as they would see me look at them.

However, their memory of me did not extend to allowing me to get my camera and take their picture.  Definitely a very wary bird.  So I had to post an old photo I was able to take of them last year from my kitchen window.

It was so nice to see them again though.  They are a very elegant bird, and I do love the sounds they make when the flock flies off.  Spring is coming to our Rocky Mountains, and I am glad to welcome it back.
