Resting Pigeon

I was surprised to see this lone pigeon resting by itself this morning. I snuck outside to get as close as possible, yet the bird did not move a bit. Curious to know if it was injured, I stepped outside and walked carefully up to the bird. It did see me at that point yet I still managed to get within five feet of him. He stared at me, I stared back at him. Then suddenly he lit off! I’m glad the bird was not injured, apparently it just wanted to rest!

  1. Probably sunbathing. Does look a little bedraggled though, so might have a few more lice than usual…

  2. I had one pigeon that used to come into my classroom and sit on my podium while I was teaching class. The students named him, he visited everyday, and I shared my lunch with him. (Ps I do NOT like the “city chickens”…..but this one was different) His photo even made the yearbook!!
