Smigeon The Pigeon

May 10, 2019  •  5 Comments


A few weeks ago we had a pigeon show up out of the blue at the feeders. It must be a country pigeon because we're nowhere near the city. I've never had a pigeon at my feeders even when I lived in town. Smigeon is always by himself and has been a regular since first appearing. Sometimes the Mourning Doves look at him like he's the weird cousin they've never met.

Strange that he (she?) is on his own - birds of a feather normally flock together and all that.

Not everyone's favourite, but beautiful in it's own way.

How amazing! He maybe didn't stop to ask for directions! Beautiful sighting for you though!

I see pigeons often in the country. They are seen on tops of barns, fences and eating off the ground. Great photos, it is a pretty bird. Thanks for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend. PS, thank also for leaving me a comment.
