Seagull flew the loft Empty
PostSubject: Seagull flew the loft   Seagull flew the loft Icon_minitimeThu Oct 22, 2009 7:00 pm

I haven't been on here for a while but have a sad/happy story why.
About 2-3 weeks ago Seagull found a way to get out of the Loft, I was so worried about him, I walked around the whole neighborhood, then drove around. Finally after several hours of no Seagull, I decided to head home, on my way home I drove by a house that feeds the pigeons, and there was Seagull with a flock, I was so happy to find him that I sat there and cried.
So knowing that he was alright and back with his flock I decided to tear down the loft and flyway and make a feeding station for all of the feral pigeons.(79 at last count) Seagull is here every morning at 9:30 and in the afternoon at 3:00. At first it was just a few pigeons, and everyday it grows.
They are starting to hangout in the feeding station and not leaving. And today they let me sit out with them, so tomorrow if it's not raining I'll start taking photos, haven't tired yet because of any movement scares them off.
I'm so happy that Seagull is free again, and sure do enjoy watching them fly.
The birds all ready have figured out if they come to the front porch and cooo I'll come out and feed,
and they have figured out that they better not wait to long to come down and feed. My husband has stated I better be careful not to get attacked by the flock, but besides the movies I don't think pigeons attack confused
So state tune for photo's
and would you belive that I'm naming them all, there is Seagull, Lighting, White Wing, Roughy(her feathers are always a mess)
Lonely, Blackie, Zebra, Nasty(he chases everyone out of the loft when he comes to feed) and Sweetheart(She is the friendly one)
The rest will get names too as I watch them and get to know them better. Seagull flew the loft 23878

Well I'm happy for Seagull. Smile

I'm sorry you torn down the loft. I have 3 Pigeons I was going to ask you to take. Having a bad day

I'm very glad to hear the news about Seagull, especilly after the initial worry when he escaped. It's good he's back with his flock, and better still that you still have a chance to see him.
Picture(s)/video We'll hold you to that promise...

I am sorry too! In my ideal world there would be small aviaries in every pigeon lovers garden , for the unreleasable ones that face euthanasia.

But I am glad that Seagull and his friends are turning up for their meals and health checks! YESS!!

I felt bad tearing the loft down but I wanted Seagull to have a place to come eat when ever he was hungrey, I do have plans on building a loft and flyway in the yard, but it will be bigger then the dollhouse loft, and a larger flyway so when the feral birds come in the pigeons that are in there have room to fly around, and then I'll attach the dollhouse to the outside wall of the loft.
Even the neighbors are enjoying the birds, and several of them have started to feed them too. Seagull has united the Garden Tract district people and is the talk of the area, it's like where is Seagull, and even thou he is all white he is easy to spot because of his left wing sits a bit lower then the right. And on a even happier note one lady has annouced that if people want to go in on a grain deal she will go to the feed store(120 mile round trip) so we all can get more seed for the buck.
Never dought the power of a Pigeon crazy
PS it is down pouring so photo's will have to wait tell tomorrow

it is such a strange feeling when a baby you've watched everday growing up fledges and joins the flock Happy :(

i spy on the feral flock everyday and often spot "my" balcony babies

just wish my neighbours appreciated these beautiful birds, i have some sad news but won't hijack your thread

looking forward to seeing pics...when weather allows

That's great news, Effa!
120 mile round trip?! Ouch! Guess I'm spoiled rotten living in a miniature country... That's a lovely offer from your neighbour!

Seagull flew the loft Pigeon10

Waiting for the rain to lift, Seagull is on top of the telephone pole
The Wire is about 1/2 block from my house

Seagull flew the loft Seagul15

This is the other bird Seagull has all ways hung out with, I've been calling him Lighting because he
has a bolt on his breast

Larger group of birdies Wink

Seagull flew the loft Sweeth10

This is Sweetheart, she comes up to the porch and doesn't fly away when I throw seed out for her,
I don't feed the main birds to close to the house, I gave them a corner of the yard that we've haven't
done anything with yet. But this little bird is the only one that comes up to the porch, I wonder if she
was one that someone saved and released too!!!!
