I always enjoying seeing your photos, and I loved the 'bonus' video. Luna, Apollo and their babies *pic heavy* - Page 2 26340

first peek through the letterbox this morning revealed Sora marching out into the middle of the balcony! Smile

Apollo turned up to do breakfast, still no sign of Luna

here's the cheeky boy-chick:

clean-up time this evening was lots of fun
getting lively now(vid)
it's not them cooing...it's the roof pijies...maybe dad

Oh, they're SO cute! Those expressive faces are just precious!
Their feathers are now changing daily, and it's great to see the colours and patterns becoming defined. It's amazing how quickly they grow!
Dad is doing a great job! I hope Luna comes back.

light was not good on thursday and friday, i did take pics but they were not clear

yesterday was clean up time again so much better opportunity

the squeakers have such different personalities, Sora interacts with me - wouldn't go as far to say that he likes me but he waggles his wings & explores my hand with his beak
Tsai Yun is a madam just like her mum - she goes through the whole repertoire of defensive & attacking behaviour....stands tall, inflates her crop, makes huffy noises, draws her head right back before pecking me and the other day she wing-slapped me Luna, Apollo and their babies *pic heavy* - Page 2 142829 ...none of this hurts me, but i hope it might make any future enemies back off

i haven't seen Luna, that's a week now...but Apollo is working hard

having spied Sora right in the middle of the balcony i modified their corner to prevent a confrontation between pij & postman, plan is to allow them to walk along but not across

it was fascinating watching Apollo work it out the next morning...he walked along the board i had put there a few times, considering it carefully; then he jumped up onto it looking into the nest, flew to the balcony rail to look down from a different angle;
then back to the balcony floor to pace up & down a bit more before jumping onto the board and diving into the gap to the nest

all the time dad & kids where talking to each other Smile
seems he is very dedicated, and to my untrained eye the babies are looking good...yesterday's pics:

looking very grown-up now

I am so sorry that you haven't seen Luna. If Apollo is raising them on his own, he is doing a wonderful job...with your help!

They are beautiful babies.

Thanks for the updated photos and video. They're great. Luna, Apollo and their babies *pic heavy* - Page 2 52853
Sora and Tsai Yun are absolutely adorable.

It just breaks my heart that Luna hasn't returned. Luna, Apollo and their babies *pic heavy* - Page 2 319297

well i'm totally hooked on pijies now

yesterday i found the binoculars and have been taking a sneaky look at the roof-flock opposite
whilst doing this i noticed that somebody has put mesh
Luna, Apollo and their babies *pic heavy* - Page 2 Roofcmp-1
the guttering was being cleaned the other day- that grass has gone...guess they did it at the same time;
there is a few feet of board near the front not covered though and i have seen pijies disappear just there

today i worked from home so i popped out to clean the nest area at lunch time
camera came too of course & i was pleased with the photo shoot
Sora is such a poser - i have loads of pics from today
Tsai Yun was not quite as obliging but i'm pleased to say that she is still delivering a healthy wing-slap

you've got that camera again

saw my over-the-road neighbour talking to a man with a l..o..n..g ladder on his truck, they both looked up at the pigeon roof Hmmm

meanwhile, back on my balcony, i think Apollo is calling the youngsters to venture out from the nest
he doesn't fly straight off after feeding time but hops from one level to another cooing emphatically
the "babies" are looking very grown-up and exercising their wings a lot

so i'm going to post all the pics today...as these could be near the end of them

synchronised staring:

Luna, Apollo and their babies *pic heavy* - Page 2 Sat104

er ...i could try showing her my bum?
Luna, Apollo and their babies *pic heavy* - Page 2 Sat105

she's not taken the hint - just pose so we look good

Sweet babies...I hope no evil befalls them.
Now just because they fly away doesn't mean you should fly away from us...OK? You are highly valued here.

I love the new photos and the captions are wonderful. Luna, Apollo and their babies *pic heavy* - Page 2 164371
The 'testing' of the wings is too precious. Luna, Apollo and their babies *pic heavy* - Page 2 735397
I suspect they will stick around. So you must keep your camera handy. Luna, Apollo and their babies *pic heavy* - Page 2 Icon_wink

Tsai Yun still fluffs up when i go near her & will bite me...doesn't hurt, and it's easy enough to pick her up at cleaning time
Sora doesn't mind me, i think he tries to preen my hand I love it/them

only managed to take Tsai Yun's portrait today, but it does show she has just a few less fuzzy bits

Luna, Apollo and their babies *pic heavy* - Page 2 4008821133_3cdc0f7aa4

and then she did a wonderful flapping dance

pijies woke me up this morning, i could hear them flapping Feeling great

Apollo was here before it was properly light, but the squeakers didn't leave with him
they were pottering around on the balcony when i got up

i took them some water; as this was the first time i'd done it i took a jug to fill the bowl with - having read that pouring the water can encourage them but they didn't need persuading!
Sora wandered over straight away and put his beak in...then he ran squeaking happily to his sis...they rubbed beaks and he turned right back, Tsai Yun following

she drank straight away too, then walked into the bowl even though it was barely big enough for a footbath,
i went off to fetch an oven dish Wink
Luna, Apollo and their babies *pic heavy* - Page 2 Th_bath

funnily enough today Tsai Yun wasn't anywhere near as stroppy as she has been - i guess her little bit of freedom has given her some confidence

both squeakers were still here when i returned home from work and they seemed pretty relaxed, but i think they met the postie this morning - i'm told the mail was dropped on the mat rather than put through the door

Why is it that every time I see pictures of baby pijs, be it dirty or clean, cute or ugly - well , they're all cute, I kinda cry remembering my pijs when they were babies. Mama pij reaction? Sorry for the drama......but yes seriously, that's how I feel.
