We’ve made a few changes on this website.

The calender is now an Archive and should be easier to navigate. Simply click on the month and year you want and read through the posts (it shows the last post of the month first). At the bottom of the page you’ll find a “Previous entries” button to go back through to the beginning of the month. Please note that in 2010 there was a post a day so there’s quite a lot of reading to do if you’ve only just found us! :D

Another change we made was to add a “Featured” box at the top (part of the row of pink boxes) which contains those posts we think should stand out on their own because of the information in them (e.g. what to do if you find an injured pigeon, and about pigeons and disease).

As we learn more about pigeons and have more contact with other pigeon people we’ll be making changes and adding or taking away things we think will help make our blog as pigeon friendly as possible!

We’re not a pigeon rescue centre, we don’t breed or sell pigeons, nor do we race or show pigeons. We simply share our lives with two amazing feral pigeons who show us every day that life with pigeons is life worth living.

(Too corny? :) )


Well, I’ve finally finished the new website design and incorporated it into WordPress. I do hope you all like it.

Firstly, although our site has been tested for Internet Explorer, it has been designed for Firefox, so if you are using Internet Explorer you won’t see a lot of the design elements I’ve included.

Everything you normally look for is where it normally is. Mostly you are after the latest posts which is always on the Home page. If you ever want to go back to the homepage just click the Home link in the top navigation bar.

Georgie, Elmo, Dora, Minnie & Human bios are all in the top navigation bar as well, although we are now known as ‘About Us’.

If you would like to find a post on a specific date, use the pink filter buttons (Calendar, Recent Posts, Categories, Links). Each filter is self evident, click a day in the calendar to go to that date, click a recent post in recent posts… etc.

If you would like to share a blog post, click the share button (above the post title and on the right of the page), which will open a small menu for you to select which social networking site to share with.

If you would like to comment on a post click the ‘write comment’ button at the very bottom of the post itself to take you to the comment form.

I’ve included links to our various social networking sites in case you’d like to follow us on any of them. This is just above the right sidebar.

To search for posts use the search box on the very top of the right sidebar (hit ENTER on your keyboard to search).

I’ve included our Flickr photo library in the right sidebar, any new pictures in Flickr will show up there, click the thumbnail to get a larger view.

Our 2 latest videos from YouTube are also shown. In the coding I’ve merged both mine and Rev’s videos into one list, and the 2 latest are selected from that list.

I hope no-one has any troubles. There are still a few things I’d like to tweek and get right, but that’s a never ending task.

I would love to hear your thoughts on our site (critisism included!). Click the ‘Feedback’ tab on the right hand side of the page to get in touch!

Pretty girl!

When we first got Georgie I wanted to share all the photos and videos we took of her so I set up her own Facebook account so ‘she’ (ahem, I) could upload everything for my family and friends to see.

Georgie now has 56 friends and enjoys seeing photos and stories from everyone, animal people in particular. Search for ‘Georgie Pigeon’ on Facebook and add her as a friend if you want to see more about her – particulary how we called her a boy before we knew any better!! I find it quite amusing to see all the comments I wrote on her photos refering to her as a boy. How silly!

There are also many videos of Georgie on YouTube. Simply click on this link: http://www.youtube.com/user/PigeonsAsPets

Now we have this website to advertise our love for our pigeons and Georgie is certainly loving the attention.
