    That is interesting - having homing pigeons. The bird you took the picture of is banded of course, but does it have significance such as to whom he belongs, or when he was released. All I see around here are wild birds - none banded.

    Wren on nest

    Here is the girl I'm watching now. Built nest in garage. I have been trying to get a picture of her on the nest, but she has flown off every time I approached until today. Stayed right there while I took about 6 flash shots.

    Hair of the dog

    Title might also have been, "Waste not, want not." She has put hair from our dog brushings in her nest.

    XOO:

    I'm only a very amature homing pigeon enthusiast, but I believe that the banding should be traceable to someone. I purchased my birds as youngsters from a guy a couple hours from here, and he had already banded all of the birds. Mine have initials and a number that identify them as coming from his loft.

    I was unable to make out any real markings on this bird's bands. If he had joined my birds in the loft I would have been able to catch him and have a closer look at his bands.

    Weird. For what it's worth, it shows up here, earlier today and still, now.

    It's a very cute fuzzy duckling, and a nice photo.
