Some very basic pigeon facts

Wild species in italics

Pidge is a street pigeon that someone found as a baby on the side of the road. I hand-fed him until he was old enough to make it on his own--about 4 weeks of taking a baby pigeon everywhere I went. Now he's the fastest and friendliest flier in my flock (hmmm, perhaps the most alliterative avian, also).

Sadly, the week before Christmas, 1995, Pidge was lost to a hawk. This will remain as his memorial.

I don't normally listed general groups, but, since I live in the Hudson Valley of NY, here's the Hudson Valley Pigeon Group.
