Folksy Friday - The Pigeon

I am one of the few people who actually like pigeons, I find them amusing, cute and interesting.

A couple of months back, I rescued a racing pigeon which had got lost and winded up in our back garden, having a spare hutch I managed to catch the little thing, provide bird seed, water and bedding. Contacted the number on the ring on it's leg and managed to get hold of the owner. A pigeon courier (- yes that's a real job) came to pick up the little bird the very next day and left me his business card.

This pigeon was dehydrated, exhausted and close to death, thankfully we brought it round and managed to get it back to the owner where it made a full recovery. It was so sweet and had the most beautiful eyes.

So today my Folksy Friday is about the Pigeon. There are very few items on Folksy for this little bird, but here are my favourites.

I hope you all have a super weekend.
