Garage Door Pigeon

Coo, coo, coo!

Artist: Luvsumone

I love holding pigeons. They are so warm and gentle, and the coos reverberate through me.

The most beautifully electric feeling is the pecking for the grains I hold. Not one pigeon has ever pooed on me, only cooed.

    1. Thank you, Georgiann! I adore them.
      I saved some pigeon babies. A neighbor brought in the “Make pigeons stay away guy” They were going to put up spikes, so the pigeons could not nest on an outcrop. BUT there was already baby pigeons in a nest. I could see them closely from a window. I must say, baby pigeons are not the prettiest (ech). They looked up at me, and our eyes met.
      They were going to kill them, and clear out the nest.
      I’m skipping the part of the story where I went quite crazy, resulting in everyone waiting until the nest was naturally vacated. Now all I see out the window is spikes.

        It’s really cool that you did that. I don’t understand people who call pigeons ‘street rats’ and so forth. These birds really are beautiful creatures.

        1. I think people are annoyed by the pigeon poo. GET A HOSE!
          The only street rats, are real rats, and some %^$#@s I have met.
          You know, pigeons cooing reminds me of cats purring. ❤

        1. Well, I suppose you’ll want to hear about my fave chicken & the emotionally scarring experience when Uncle Jack chopped her head off! xoxo 😀

  1. How very lovely this is, Resa, your words, feelings, descriptions. And the pigeon mural is stunning. The artist was able to capture the iridescence and the soft beauty of a pigeon. I like the extra touch of the big red orb (setting sun?), I think it adds definition and warmth to the whole art piece.

  2. Too sweet, Resa; the artist captured the irridescent quality beautifully.
    I do agree with you re the bubbies looks. The last two springs we’ve had doves nesting in our yard. I’ve managed to snap a few images of the chicks; all featherless quills, wrinkly skin and oversized eyes make for some very strange alien looking blobs. However, they develop into the most sleek, gentle and sweetest natured, handsome birds.
    I am slightly green. To peck food from my hand would be wonderful. 🙂

    1. Aliens is a perfect word for how the bubbies look. And they are quite helpless, and do make very innocent eye contact. Pigeons will eat from your hand quite easily. Go to a pigeon park, where people feed birds and pigeons all the time. Sit on a blanket on the grass, sprinkle seeds about you, put a bunch in your extended hand. Be very, very still. 😀 xoxoxoxo

  3. Beautiful post, Resa. The art is gorgeous and your words are sweet and witty. Unfortunately, I have been pooed on, but I don’t hold grudges. 🙂 The red background also stood out for me, which is a bold and beautiful contrast to the soft shades of the pigeon.
    By the way, I found your blog from Marina’s and will enjoy perusing…
