Pigeon behaviour fascinates me. Elmo will peak round the door when I’m in the bathroom brushing my teeth. Sometimes he’ll just stand there and stare. If I look at him he’ll turn around, fan his tail feathers, drop his wings, and drag his feathers across the floor – prancing away fully expecting me to follow him. The swoosh of his feathers against the carpet is such a lovely sound. Sometimes I hear this sound in another room and wonder who and what he’s dancing to (usually some discarded socks or a bottle of water).

Other times Elmo will barge in – announcing his presence with loud “Here I am! Look at me! Aren’t I gorgeous?!” coos. He’ll dance and sing to my feet, sometimes trying to mount my heel (he loves my heels but hates my toes. Weird foot fetish!). If I ignore him, Elmo will stop, look up at me and wait until I look down at him. If I don’t, he might give me a slight peck on foot.

If I don’t immediately follow Elmo when he dances away, he’ll wedge himself behind a door or under a desk and wait there for me to find him. He’ll help me find him by his insistent cooing. Not the best hide-and-seek player. :)

It is hard to ignore a pigeon. Especially when they’re as adorable and loving as Elmo!

Just now I took a few photos of Georgie on the floor. She was standing there pecking at the air – completely in a world of her own – and surprisingly she didn’t respond to the camera light going on as I took photos of her (I disabled the flash though because I know that that would definately snap her out of her daydreaming).

So there I am, lying on my stomach, snapping away when these appear in front of the camera:

Elmo just has to be involved in everything that happens in our home!! :)

I tried to shoo him away but he just kept running over to me, cooing and prancing about like the little attention seeker he is! At one point he tried to mate with the camera! Silly boy.

Not happy with me ignoring his advances Elmo then proceeds to claim me by jumping onto my back and dancing up and down.

Pigeons can be so demanding!! :)

Ps. Georgie’s eye looks better. She’s no longer closing it and it doesn’t look dry. Yay!
