it's so exciting I love it/them i wanted to start a new thread, hope that's ok

i found Sora halfway out of nest this morning:
first flight *yay* on vid Sun1110

first flight *yay* on vid Th_RMOV0195

he's standing on 1 of a pair of single shelf bookcases which are the nest walls
the wooden thing (roof) is a corner TV stand
original nest (minus roof)...
first flight *yay* on vid Nest
was squashed in the corner...the TV stand is the only thing i've kept
the changes were made gradually so's not to upset mum & dad

later i heard Apollo calling the kids, this vid is very poor quality having been shot through the letterbox! but if you need to know what happened give it a go Laughing
first flight *yay* on vid Th_learning

after lunch i went out to take pics
i moved the "roof" down to the balcony floor and popped Sora on it to photograph him
...he looked curious about making his own way down
first flight *yay* on vid Sun11107
1st attempt he's a little embarrrassed about, he kinda crashed into the bicycle - no real harm done tho
so i retrieved him
we try again, i stood back camera at the ready:
first flight *yay* on vid Th_Movie

success Celebrate
he lands back in the nest

no more flights today

but i'll update when there's news Tickled Pink

Kind of scary when the sky is your ceiling. They sure grew up fast. Smile

i would never have thought that seeing 2 pigeons walking about would be so exciting but That's too funny
on arriving home from work we opened the door to see Sora & Tsai Yun out of the nest...just pottering about

my camera was in my bag - battery low but i managed to capture this
first flight *yay* on vid Th_walkaboutm

Sora even jumped up onto the wall but just for a good look around before returning to the nest
Tsai Yun joined him in there a few minutes later and last time i looked they were asleep I love it/them

Sora was too active today for me to do his portrait but there's a nice one of Tsai Yun, and a vid of her having a wing test on the other thread

I think we're going to miss them as much as you when they eventually fly the nest.

This has been a great story to follow as I for one don't see youngsters growing up from such an early stage with their parents in the wild. It's been a real pleasure.
Look forward to the next flight. Right on

there's been a lot going on where the flock hangs out
a few weeks ago the guttering was cleaned & (possibly at the same time) the mesh appeared

in the last few days the spikes were fitted

yesterday a saw a banded pigeon up there...it had a green band on 1 leg & a yellow on the other, it was still here today
it's the blue bar at the front of the roof in this pic
first flight *yay* on vid RIMG0299crp
you can see the mesh and spikes in this too

Tsai Yun stayed away from the balcony last night...guess she was with her dad
Sora roosted here but was flying before was out of bed
i saw them all on the roof near our balcony
first flight *yay* on vid Fledged


*and* today i spotted Sora over with the flock...then when i loaded the photo i could see what i'm pretty sure is his sis
first flight *yay* on vid Storytext

saddest news is that i have now counted 4 pijies behind the mesh...2 blue, 1 white & 1 red...i just hope there's an exit for them somewhere else

Just checking to see if there's any update on this situation?
I hope all the pijjies are doing OK.

there have been no more birds stuck and the flock is as big as ever
i can't even see all of it as they hang out on the other side of the ridge too
the youngsters have been there sometimes

Apollo the dad-bird has been back to our balcony
a few weeks ago i was in the flat & heard loud calling - a familiar voice
it was him casting a critical eye over the changed objects on the balcony
he called a great deal but nobody else came

more recently he was sitting on the wall as we left the house, i said hello but he flew off!

some days ago i heard him again, this time he was with a similar-coloured pij
they did a thorough inspection then flew to the ledge above the far door & roosted for the afternoon
haven't seen them since tho

Appreciate the update, rattyfied. first flight *yay* on vid 570843
I'm so glad Apollo has come back to visit. It's comforting to see them and know they are OK.
I hope all the others are doing well.

hmm...well it's not often i can recall it snowing 2x with only a small gap between
we usually have a little snow each year...but the way it disrupts everything - you'd think it was a first every time

The new pigeon Apollo brought back with him -- do you suppose that's a new mate?
Thanks for the update, Rattyfied, it's great to hear the good news! Great job

well the (extra) rain we had today has done a pretty good job of clearing the snow, hopefully the (forecasted) rain tomorrow will wash the grass and roads clean
and thanks for the order...we could certainly do with some sun
