Thank you for welcoming me. I have decided to do my posts here in the Feral Pigeons and Doves section. I decided to move from the adoption section as I am no longer up for adoption or looking for a new home. I have found a new forever home, and am very much loved by my new Mom and Dad. I am a little feral male pigeon who was lucky enough to be rescued by a wonderful person who loved me enough to help me and even find me a forever home in a loft with an aviary, and a cute little mate by the name of Cricket. She actually flew me from Oregon to Massachusetts on a big air plane. Now that's love. She made sure that I was safe and comfortable in a little carrier with my hedgehog. And she followed my flight all day on her computer, just to make sure that my flight was on schedule, and that I would arrive safely at my destination. She saved my life, and for that I will always be so grateful. Thank you Momma Faon. Thanks for my life. You will never know just how much you did for me. You took care of my medical problems, and your gentleness and kindness with me helped me to learn to be able to trust people. You loved me, and I knew that. And now I would like to share my new experiences of my new life here at the loft, from a pigeons point of view. The name of our loft is "Love Built Loft". And it was built for 6 little feral pigeons that were rescued by my now Mom a couple of years ago. More have come to live here since then, as there are lots of pigeons out there who have been rescued from one thing or another. Each one of us is loved and sheltered here. And I would like to share my stories with you about my experiences here. So thanks for the nice welcome, and I'll be back!

Hi everyone! Virgil here!

This is the view from my perch just outside my nest box. I can watch all the goings on, and the birds outside the window who come to the feeders and baths. In the nice weather, Mom opens all the windows, and lets the soft breezes blow through. I like that the warm sunshine comes right into our loft, and right onto my perch in the early and mid afternoon. Kinda neat.
The Chronicals of Virgil Morningsintheloft002
I really like my new ramp. Makes it easy to get to the floor and back up to my box. I like it so much that I actually slept on it last night. That way I could be sure nobody else used it while I was asleep.
The Chronicals of Virgil VirgilsRamp001

Now I can even guard the floor from my ramp. This morning I went all the way down my ramp to the floor, and tried to chase everyone away from the feeder.
The Chronicals of Virgil Morningsintheloft003

But they must have been hungry, cuz they pretty much ignored me. But I didn't give up that easy! No, not me, I just circled them like the indians around a wagon train.

The Chronicals of Virgil Morningsintheloft009

I finally tired of this and went back to gathering straw for my nest.
The Chronicals of Virgil Morningsintheloft119
Thank goodness for that ramp, cuz another bird hopped onto my nest box perch, as I had left my guard duty for a few minutes. So I ran up the ramp as quick as my little pijjie legs would carry me, and threw him off! Yep! I just love my ramp!
The Chronicals of Virgil VirgilsRamp012
People think that handicapped birds can't live in a loft, but depending on the handicap, and just a few little adjustments to the loft, and we can get around very well, and actually live a good life with the other pigeons. So much better than being kept alone. Look at me! I have a mate, my very own nest box, a special ramp for me, so that I can get all over the loft, and I can even get in the pool. Don't get much better than that! Hey, maybe I should ask to have my hedgehog moved in here with us. I'll bet he'd love it!

Virgil...I saw your Hawthorne flock today and they look good. Everyone was leaving them alone and they were eating the breakfast Faon left for them. I yelled acroos the street so they could hear...Vigil is doing good. There was a human walking past that gave me a very odd look... Hmmm ...I wonder why?!

Hi Virgil, and Virgil's mum!

Wonderful pictures!!!!! I love it/them I love it/them I love it/them The last one, with the intruder flying away, is amazing, but the one that had me laughing was the one of Virgil looking surprised and disgusted to see the other pigeons ignoring him and just eating! ROTFL

What a great life you have, Virgil! My pigeons and I agree with you that a handicap does not make you any less than you are! Hip Hip Hooray

Thank you everyone for coming to visit me. It's nice to have friends.
Charis, I'm glad my old flock is doing good. Thanks for telling them that I'm good. Do you think they miss me? I was just wondering, cuz I know how much I miss them. I know I have a new flock now, but sometimes when the feral flock comes to eat, I just stand out in the aviary and I watch them. I look at all of them to see if I know anybody, but of course I don't. I always have to remind myself that it isn't my flock, and that my flock is so far away. A whole long plane ride away. If you see them again, tell them all that I think of them a lot. And I wonder how they all are. It's been so long. When Mom sees me standing there watching the outside flock, she looks sad. Do you suppose she knows that I'm missing my friends? I don't want her to feel bad about it, cause I am happy here, and I know she loves me. Today she set up the pools again, and got everyone outside to go swimming, so that she could scrub the loft. All the shelves and perches and box fronts. Then she let it dry before letting the others back in. A few of us stayed behind watching the eggs, so she let us stay in. Then she set up the little pool for me and Cricket, inside, as she didn't want to lock Cricket outside with the others. And of course, I was sitting on the eggs. We didn't go in the water though, as we were too nosey about watching the others out in the aviary.

It's been a long day, and past my bedtime. Remember to say hi to Momma Faon for me, and tell her I think about her too. Tell her if she thinks of it, that my friends would LOVE some chopped peanuts with their seed. Peanuts are really great. I love them. Mom put out some chopped kale in the pigeon feeder out in the yard the other day, along with the seed, and she told me that they ate ALL of it! We like it too. Well, gotta go roost for the night now. Nite Everyone!
