The Eye Of The Rat

You may remember my recent battle with the flying rats, aka pigeons recently. The birds took over my new bird feeder and drove the sweet little birds I wanted there to photograph and enjoy in just one day.

They kept coming back to where the feeder was for a week or more, pushing and flipping the woodchips onto the rocks in a desperate hunt for seeds. Sorry, it’s all gone now, they haven’t been back, Thank God! These birds are a big problem here, and that pole is going to stay there to be used otherwise.

While they are an attractive bird to me, they are just not welcome home invaders! Click the pic.

  1. These have showed up here in the last year or two. Not many, and they don’t stay for long. We just had never seen them here before and have lived in this area for 15+ years. I agree – attractive, just not welcome.

    • Thank you, Bruce! I had a look at your site, very nice. They have every right to live of course, but damn they are such prolific breeders! Some mornings just after I roll out of bed, I will have a look at my backyard and can’t help but notice the army of Rock Pigeons on the roofs of my neighbors! They will be here after humans have gone. ๐Ÿ˜‚
