Pigeon youngster mobbed
at the feeders, by adults,
still holding his own.

We have a young pigeon hanging around the garden that keeps getting mobbed by adult birds. He seems to have a bit of a damaged wing and can’t fly far, however he can scuttle away fast enough to avoid capture by us humans! He gobbles up the seed dropped by other birds and I scatter some food on the ground for him when the others aren’t about so he seems to find plenty to eat. He is a survivor. He obviously finds somewhere to hide when necessary and seems to be gradually improving. Pigeons are a bit of a pest but I don’t like to see one hurt and hopefully he will soon make a full recovery.

    I like watching birds. Even the not so exiting looking ones can prove interesting.

    I feed my birdies yesterday afternoon when it was just above freezing because I didn’t want to be out in the very low temp of 16f / about 9c this morning!
