Guilty


Or if not this pigeon, at least one of its relatives feasted on my kale. You would think the pigeon equivalent of butter wouldn't melt in its mouth, tho. "Who, me?" it seems to be saying. I caught this one peering in through our kitchen window - presumably to see if any tasty greens were available. Still, they are rather beautiful birds.

They are pretty birds, even if frustrating at times.

Don, don't worry, having grown up in the country I'm not too squeamish. During WW2 my father's family supplemented their diet with a lot of 'wild' meat, and he remembers his mother making crow pie, which apparently was very tasty.

Darla, I see you have pigeons on your blog just now too!

Hi Linda,
The fire hydrants must be on your other blog. You took some great pics of that pigeon. It is a good looking bird.

This blog is one I showed the ladies last night. They were amazed that they were looking at a garden in Scotland.

Pigeon, miam, miam :-)I cooked it for my English relatives last time (just in the oven with bacon around and herbs). One of them liked it, the other one didn't try ... but I not sure to be able to kill any bird for the moment.

Pigeons are the bane of every gardeners life no matter where you live!
