Pigeon nest update
- UPDATE ON PIGEON NESTS ON MY WINDOW SILL
April 29, 2002
One egg has disappeared, seems like it got predated by a house crow,
which was trying to get to it several times and was shooed away by
the Pigeon. This was the exposed nest. This bird is also very
sensitive to our presence and flies away at the slightest approach.
The one in the shoeflower pot is doing well and has the bird round

The second egg from the exposed nest also has disappeared and so has
the bird. It seemed very obviously in the open, with no protective
devise from the eyes of predators (thinking very anthropomorphically)
it was doomed right from the beginning. Second nest is doing very
well. All's safe and fine at 2200hrs.

In the Shoeflower pot nest, one egg has hatched into a yellowish
coloured chick - it now shares its birthday with my dad! Shall be
putting up the handicam from today or latest by tomorrow.
