The Pigeon's Nest

This pigeon has taken up residence in an old flower basket hanging from our lemon tree.  Her mate flies back and forth with bits of grass, but they are having a great time pulling apart the basket lining.

In all the years we've lived here, this is our first bird's nest, and I'm unaccountably pleased that she chose our backyard.  I keep an eye on her from my desk, and keep the dogs far away from the mother-to-be.  In turn she keeps a calm eye on me.

If you know anything about pigeon care, please leave a comment.  Thanks!

  1. That is so neat that bird has taken up residence in your back yard. Your yard looks lovely. I dont think you have ever posted pictures of your home have you?
