    We begin raising Rock Pigeons after saving a young one who’d fallen from its nest. What amazing birds. Clever,silly, kindly, and even loving, each with it’s own particular personality, our growing flock has taught us much about the world of birds. Other bird species also visit now, and our backyard has become a haven bringing much joy into our lives. The extra bonus: Our Grandchildren love visiting as well.
