Thirsty?

Yesterday evening after coming back from the beach we found in our balcony this pigeon. It was not scared of us cause it did not move, we realised that the poor thing was probably thirsty and tired. It chose our balcony for one reason we had a bucket full of water from the air condition pipe. I couldn't get a good photo of it as of the position it chose to stay for her rest.

j'ai horreur des pigeons, a Evry c'est une vraie plaie...on n'arrive pas à d'en débarrasser.


I detest the pigeons, has Evry it is a true wound… one does not sometimes happen at to disencumber some.

I like this misty view of the bird. I'm told pigeons bring disease. Seems a pity - just another bird and birds are nice!

Jilly, I know pigeons are not great, infact we did not go close to the bird. We kept our distance safely tucked behind glass doors.

Olivier, I don't like pigeon either, our capital city Valletta is surrounded by pigeons and whenever I go there I am always on the alert to get out of their way just in case they get too close.

the poor bird. but the story behind it makes the photo 'mysterious' as it seems to be?

I often have pigeons come to my bird table...they are very greedy and eat all the food! people used to feed pigeons at Trafalgar Sqare in London but now it is not allowed because of the damage to historical buildings due to their "droppings".

There's pigeons and there's pigeons. Dirty street pigeons are vermin and some do carry disease, but others that stop and rest are homing pigeons. These normally have a ring or two on their legs.
My father kept these pigeons for racing, when tired or lost these will stop to rest or drink then get off on their way home.
These bird will also carry the owners address... it is stamped in ink on the inside of their wings along with a contact number.
