Pigeons Find a Strange Home #atozchallenge

A Whimsical Medley - Is my theme for the A to Z Challenge !! Hope you smile today :)
Nature is strange sometimes, but strong and determined. The tress are felled non stop, concrete jungle is on the rise, the night sky is illuminated by skyscrapers and Aeroplanes. Amidst adversities, this Pigeon family found the oddest of homes as their little nest - a cleaning MOP on the fourth floor balcony, owned by my friend Ranjini and her two cats - Woody and Snowy.

Here they are, the Pigeon parents scouting the area.

They laid two eggs on the mop. My friend had to barricade this area to prevent her cats from jumping on them. 

As the time passed by two little baby pigeons popped out of the eggs.

But that wasn't enough. Soon after the baby pigeons flew away, another pigeon family made it their home.

My friend has now cleaned up the area, replaced the mop with a box and is awaiting the arrival of a new tenant :)

Along with ClaireParul and Shalini we have formed an Unconventional Alliance with A to Z co-host Pam Margolis as the ring leader ... all set to rock the party.

  1. Oh ya i know these new tenants! Someone is lucky to get featured here ;)

  2. Something similar happened to me too. And the more I helped the pigeons, the stupider they became.

  3. OMG those are so beautiful pictures and that cute story. Thumbs up to your friend, she did a great work :)

  4. What lovely photos. I personally hate pigeons and don't find them cute at all.

  5. Weird! A pigeon had once laid her eggs in an empty flower pot in my balcony. Sadly, those eggs got thrown away before they were hatched, because the pigeon's constant guttur-guttur got me very irritated :D

  6. Aha! I'm sure the new tenants will enjoy the luxury of an upgraded home. :)
    On a more serious note, I find it quite distressing that our modern concrete jungles are displacing so many birds that we used to see in our childhood. The sparrows and parrots that used to frequent our kitchen balcony in Mumbai have become a rarity.

  7. They are clever! I bet the mop makes a nice cozy nest... and the baby pigeons are adorable! :)

  8. Gosh, these birds are ingenious! I have a pair that frequents an empty pot. But sadly they make too much of a racket and the smell....ughhh! So no pigeon PG's at my place!

  9. That is cute. If only more and more people showed such compassion and care!

  10. Oh that is cute. So very cute.

  11. They made a mop their nest!! This makes for a wonderful post but sorry, I Hate them with capital H. They are such a nuisance here. They make nest on top of our window AC. I dont mind that, but they insert twigs and branches inside the AC through the vent on the top. Few days ago, during the AC servicing, there was more than a kilo of twigs INSIDE the AC!!

  12. O that is so sweet of your friend to allow them to stay comfortably. These creatures don't ask for much. Just a little compassion and humble behaviour from us and that will be all!


  13. So cute. Thank God for a saviour who helped the pigeons! A little compassion is all that is needed to help our feathered friends

  14. That is so kind a gesture, I hope the little family is doing well
