No, we didn’t have pigeon on the menu! (Many people jokingly suggested it! For shame!) However, we did try to incorporate pigeons and birds in our Christmas decorations. We’ll try to go all out next year, but for now we are happy with the few purchases we made:

I have to admit that yesterdays Christmas card was Photoshopped – because there is no way that we could have orchestrated a peaceful photo shoot with Elmo and Georgie standing together on the Christmas tree. So with a bit of magic, Richard put the following two photos together.

We think that Elmo approved of the tree.

Georgie wasn't too sure about the tree.

Georgie is still on her fake egg, and she seems happy so I didn’t take it away yet. She didn’t want to celebrate Christmas with us – she is too dedicated to her egg to leave it.

Elmo, on the other hand, got what he wished for: pine nuts and lots of love. We didn’t have to get him anything else – he is one happy pigeon! :)

Last year Georgie was more interested in Christmas. Here she is sneaking a peak under the tree to see if she’s got any presents:

I threw out lots of seed and peanuts for the birds in the garden on Christmas Day, and immediately the woodpigeons that roost in the big tree on the other side of the hedge came down to gobble up all the food (with a feral pigeon to join them):

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and have given their pet pigeons or their local wild ones lots of love!! Merry Christmas!


I have a confession to make. … I’m addicted to Etsy. I cannot help myself; there are simply too many beautiful wonderful things for sale on there!

I put ‘pigeon’ in the search engine under the ‘Jewelry’ category and 124 items came up. I found some real gems and have one already on order (a present from my darling hubby). I’d love to order the other beautiful pigeon necklaces I found but cannot afford to splash out just yet. Anyway, don’t take my word for it, have a look for yourself:

Here’s some very quirky yet fun pigeon necklaces by Ruth Bellotti at Chinnychinchin:

Pigeon Ring Necklace

Product description: “Wear a little piece of sporting greatness around your neck with this original pigeon racing ring necklace. Complete with sterling silver chain and individual pigeon profile.”

My only reservation is in thinking that these pigeons were killed to get the rings off of them, but more likely the birds died and then had their rings removed. On the other hand, maybe these rings were never on any birds – it’s most likely all make-belief.
