Speaking as a bird owner– I can see just how much Herman loves her. He’s giving her what I call lovey eyes, that look when he squints up at her with a tilted head. It warms my heart when my little bird gives me those eyes when I scritch her, and it warms my heart to see Herman do it too. 💓When I lived in an apartment in Belgrade, a met a pigeon I named Dwayne. Whenever my husband or I would sing or play guitar, Dwayne came to sit on the balcony and bob his head along to the music. If we stopped singing, he’d crane his head and wait till we continued to keep dancing. His favorite things included rolling in the flower beds, hopping along our clothes line when our clean clothes were drying (because he got more attention from us), and trying to get inside the apartment to spend more time with us because he missed us when we went inside. The people of Belgrade leave food out for pigeons, so we never fed him and he was never interested in our food. The bond was one of love. Leaving Dwayne was the hardest part about moving, and I loved that city. Pigeons are amazing. My friends growing up had a pet dove (pigeons are actually doves for those who may not know) and they really are such wonderful birds! They’re very gentle and loving. God bless you sister for being a kind steward over God’s creations. ♥Really sweet to see someone care like this. I totally agree that they do get a bad reputation “flying rats” is what I hear most often but I think they have just as much right to live on this planet as we do. Of course they tend to group where the food is just as much as humans tend to do or certainly our ancestors used to do so, it is only natural they follow the food. What I detest is when I see parents that think it’s funny to watch their kids chasing them, I’m absolutely certain if I had dogs (proportionately as big to their kids as they are to the pigeons) that started chasing their kids just for fun they wouldn’t think it so funny then! Anyhow, I once knew a guy that stayed in prison and he had the same 1 legged pigeon “Hoppy” visit him every day for food so yes I also agree that they are intelligent – certainly more intelligent than most people guve them credit for.
