    Red face crazy pigeons..?

    ok... the wild bird population here have gone crazy.. and are freaking me out more than just a little...

    they have all developed some sort of THING for my birds... our lounge is on the other side of a glass door.. that leads to the garden where we feed the wild birds.

    BUT.. recently the last 2 weeks of so... the pigeons and little doves.. are WOO'ing sweetie through the windows.. they walk up to the door.. and actually tap on the glass... and they've taken to doing it with indi as well.. sitting on the other side of the glass.. just tapping... its getting very very CREEPY!!.. <imagines all kinds of horror movies with killer birds in them>

    lol.. jokes aside.. anyone else observed such weird behaviour?

    I have 3 pigeons and one of them taps on the glass. He even sits on the grill and then flies into the glass over and over again. I'm suprised he doesn't have brain damage lol. Yes pigoens do crazy things. lol

    Re: crazy pigeons..?

    My pigeons used to tap on the glass when they wanted something like a refill on food or water, but they were never interested in my indoor birds. That IS kind of weird, but maybe Indi and Sweetie are exceptionally hot for birds and the pigeons just can't help it.

    Maybe try distracting them with some pigeon food and a nice bird bath? Tell Indi to stop flirting the the wild thugs outside?

    You should get it on video if you can.

    I'm Sorry Leandre.. but !!! Maybe Sweetie is just too much of a hottie for the local wildlife to pass up!! Its all about YOWZA!

    I'm trying to imagine the freakish babies they would have though. Hmmm... A pigeon with cheek patches and a mohawk??? LMAO!

    Re: crazy pigeons..?

    actually, wild bird behavior is strange anyway. A few years ago (pre-indoor-birds) I had a flock of sparrows crowd onto my back deck chattering and staring into the house. Seems the bird feeder was out of food

    David - LMAO that is just to funny, looks kinda strange but hey.......
    The wild pigeons here are so tame it is awsome, you can stand right next to one and it will just look at you, as if to say, ' well are you going to feed me or what?' I think they are a great bird! Some pet shops here sell very small ones, about the size of a budgie maybe a little bigger, i am not sure what they are called but they are so cute that i am considering getting a pair. (in the near future)

    Sounds like doves. Ringnecks probably.
