Suburban Pigeons

I thought pigeons were city birds. 


I thought they walked around cities cleaning up all the food litter people left lying around. I guess I thought wrong because these two have been hanging around here for the past week or so. And, as close as we are to a few major cities, we are definitely in suburbia.


I think they’re just sunning themselves, looking for a little peace and quiet, and stealing a little bird seed when the squirrels aren’t looking.


I really wouldn’t mind them hanging around if they would just quit leaving their little poopies all over the deck railing.

Actually, I think those are some kind of dove. We see them all the time in my parents backyard, picking up seeds dropped from the birdfeeders.

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
