I think Elmo’s bad behaviour has rubbed off onto Georgie. Look what she’s doing:

Richard and I went for a walk in Jesmond Dene park and had a look at the animals in Pet’s Corner. We were amused to see some Geordie woodpigeons stuffing their crops on the free food! The ducks were fast asleep nearby. They didn’t seem bothered by the theft. :)

Our gorgeous, precious girl, Georgie, turns 6 today.

Happy Hatchday, Georgie!!

This is the very first photo of baby Georgie, the day she was found abandoned and alone on the ground. Isn’t she such a sweet looking squeaker?! :)

Here she is at the rescue centre some months later, already comfortable with people:

For those of you who are not familiar with Georgie pigeon’s background, here’s a short bio:

George is a feral pigeon and hatched in 2007. She was found as a baby on the ground and taken to a wildlife rescue centre for care where it was soon discovered that there was something wrong with her eyes. George was taken to a vet, however, he didn’t know what was wrong with her eyes. Due to her reduced vision George had to have specialist care and attention and she quickly became imprinted on humans, leaving her unhappy to be left alone with other pigeons. We brought her home in June 2008 to live with us where she quickly became one of the family.

We were informed that George was a boy, however, in October 2008 George laid an egg (imagine our utter surprise!) and hence became Georgie. We have established that despite having clouded eyes she has some limited vision in them.

In the beginning of 2011 we took Georgie to an avian vet and he told us that Georgie had had an eye infection when she was a baby caused by mycoplasma bacteria that scarred the eye tissue (hence the clouded eyes) and distorted her pupils.

Georgie has bonded to Revati, however, we believe she would bond to a pigeon if we found the right one for her. So far we haven’t found a pigeon that will accept Georgie’s disability. You can find Georgie on Facebook: www.facebook.com/georgiepigeon Feel free to add her as a friend! :D
