Empty Nest Syndrome
It's been four and a half weeks since they hatched and the young pigeons now wander and flap about my little balcony making short "flights" up to the air conditioner. Their parents still keep a close eye on them and feed them although they are beginning to peck at and swallow things on their own.
They sleep huddled together in the same planter in which they were born but they have grown into their beaks...somewhat. Ah teenagers (I mean fledglings!) Soon they'll be driving!
