Watching a baby pigeon squab is quite amazing. They grow so rapidly. We have been watching for seven days since we first saw the baby. He at first looked like a little dinosaur. It was adorable.
Now within seven days, he has his feathers all fluffed. He is starting to look like a mini pigeon instead of a dinosaur. Today he started walking. It’s so cool to see. He is started to walk around the nest.
Mom and dad are now leaving him for extended hours to get him used to being on his own. We have now observed mom and dad having their alone time and getting intimate. It’s so sweet to see. They still keep an eye on the baby in the distance.
The baby squab is looking like he is about ready to leave the nest. He is getting more and more restless. He still looks forward to his nightly cuddles with his mom. The momma bird puts herself and her feathers over her baby at night like a blanket. It’s a special site to see. We have enjoyed watching this experience so much.
We cannot wait to see the baby squab learn to fly. That will be such a site to see. Stay tuned for more “Baby Pigeon Blog”.
Pigeons share responsibility of the young between the mom and dad. It is so sweet to see the two of them care for their baby everyday.
They have started preening his feathers. The baby squab is starting to look like an adult pigeon. He is getting all fluffy. It is amazing to see how fast the baby pigeon grows.
It unfair in Clark County that we cannot feed the pigeons. They are beautiful creatures. Tweet the local commissioners if you want this law undone:
