Greg, does this post have anything to do with the trauma you (may have) suffered after being chased down a busy boulevard by a crazy bird?

I doubt that very much! I think you all are too busy to stop and smell the roses...and watch the wildlife;)

I love looking for wildlife amongst our modern intrusions. Yesterday I saw pigeons, squirrels, and a chimpmunk , but still no babies .

No. That was a black bird, which I don't like now. I am fine with gray and brown and white birds.

Seeing the squirrels and little monkjack deer.Sometimes you could get within 4 or 5 metres of them.

I'm getting this terrible visual of you going all naturalist and sprinting free and loose through the trees.

Get it out of my head! Get it out!

Tina think 'reece in running shorts and trainers and vest sweating like mad and breathing like someones sucking all his oxygen out of his body and running through the trees doing about 6 minutes per mile.Then getting home and passing out

I hope you don't run them over Jeffrey or Mrs Isa will kick
your butt

No, Mrs. Isa won't kick butt.....she'll send poisoned chocolates, or ask me to buttkick for her.

I suspect pigeons don't really care what a potential mate looks like, it's all in the scent and pheromones, just like with we humanoids. And, yes, baby pigeons DO exist...they all live in our grain silo. All of them. Every baby pigeon born in the world. They start life here. All of them. Sure, it's a bit noisy at night....

I'm with you Tway....disturbing image of "naturalist" Reece. And I was just going to have lunch........a nice little squab souffle......

And remember, the "lowly" pigeon is very closely related to that icon of romance........the cooing Mourning Dove. Go figure.

CC, yup, you gotta stop and smell the wildlife. Of course, the skunks take a little getting used to.....

Oooh... how about: clad in priestly garb and accompanied by a department store manequin with pointy feet, shuffling around space in your fabulous pink Bubba-mobile... wheeeee!
