We had some lovely visitors the other day – much to Elmo’s delight! He couldn’t get enough of them. Cooing and dancing around their feet and outstretched hands, Elmo entertained them and I hope captured their hearts! :)

George was mostly silent and let Elmo do his thing. She’s shy.

It was so nice to meet new people who love pigeons, so thank you J and M for popping round! :)

In other news, Elmo’s white wing feather has fallen out! Oh no! I’ll have to record how quickly it grows back because I’m not sure how quickly feather growth occurs. It will be interesting to find out.

Elmo has been very angry at me lately, constantly following and trying to attack me. I don’t know what I’ve done to piss him off but I’m trying to keep out of his way so he can settle down and not fret about me.

Also, Elmo has taken a shine to Richard’s Dremel case. It’s big, it’s blue and by all accounts Elmo should hate it but for some bizzare reason he doesn’t. Elmo has been standing on it and cooing to it and I think he tried to mate with it at one point. … What a confused boy!

I tried sneaking a photo of Georgie but she reacted too quickly for me, so here she is not in the relaxed mode I wanted to show you but with her hackles raised!

We had two friends staying with us over the Bank Holiday weekend and as you can imagine Elmo was beside himself with joy – he never turns down a chance to show how lovable he is!! Georgie stayed in the background, happy to let Elmo make a fool of himself as he pranced about like a clown (in Georgie’s own words!).

Since the weather was nice we had a barbeque out in the garden but Elmo and George had to stay indoors because they were a bit frightened of the bbq. We couldn’t keep an eye on them as well as the food on the grill (as well as entertain our friends)! Elmo stood on the windowsill in the bedroom watching us, then he got tired and fell asleep. George had a snooze in her cage.

The feral pigeons got a bit annoyed with us since we were sitting in the garden all afternoon. They wanted to land to have their afternoon/early evening snack but we were in the way. The pigeons kept flying about in the sky, circling our garden and flat. I was a bit worried that they’d start bombing us to get us to leave the garden!! :) Flying pigeons are beautiful – the formation, the wing clapping noise they sometimes make, the speed and gracefulness of their flight. I can understand why some people choose to fly their pigeons (e.g. tumblers and other such breeds) – watching them is very relaxing.

George hasn’t laid any eggs yet. We thought she would lay them last weekend because she was very broody and moody but we were wrong. For some reason she seems to have changed her mind and isn’t looking broody at all at the moment.

And finally, last night Elmo woke us up at 3am when he almost fell off the nightstand. He flapped to regain his balance and we woke up in a bit of a panic. It’s never nice to wake up to a flapping bird – you immediately think the worst! Needless to say we weren’t impressed with him and found it hard to go back to sleep. Poor Elmo must have given himself a fright too with his near fall.
