If you read my last blog about the Toronto Ice Storm and caught the end of it where I expressed my concerns for my Pigeon pal Pierre. Well, great news! He came home on January 2nd, 2014... roughly 2 weeks since I last saw him.
We had a great morning on the deck with his return. He had a big feed from me, and lots of belly rubs. I think he was showing some affection towards me as he was trying to nibble at my hair and nose.
Angie came out and snapped a couple quick photos before returning to the warm house. It's in the -20's with the wind chill right now. I wasn't bundled up for this moment but didn't care much either.
He's hitting his 18th month mark with us in the next couple weeks. And I hope for many more to come.
Pierre has a little fan club out there now. And it's funny because not that many have met him. Even non-birder friends think it's pretty cool the "friendship" we have.
I knew from the get-go of our first weekend with him, and how unique it was, that he was special and was going to become one of our flock. Funny reading that old blog now. See here.
We had quite the weekend as you can see in this picture. Some people really thought there was vodka in that cup. Haha! It's just sunflower seed.
