Doin' the Pigeon
I'm reminded of Bert from Sesame Street when I look out on my balcony and a mama pigeon flies away and sits on the roof of the building across from us. She sits there watching our every move. She just had two eggs hatch a week or so ago, and there are two tiny, goofy looking, chicks under our air conditioning unit. By goofy looking I mean, "awkward" in an Ugly Duckling kinda way...they don't really look like pigeons...yet.
Several different birds have come and sat "on" and "with" the chicks, we're not sure who the mom is. I guess they're taking care of the baby pigeons by committee!
