Scro and Tum ta tum tum....
...flew the poopcoop last week. But I am just now recovering from the after effects of singlehandedly cleaning the nest. Let us review some things I have learned.
1. Pigeons are okay with sleeping with bugs.
2. And their own poo.
3. And maggots. Yes, I said maggots.
4. Once they can fly, they will not necessarily leave you the hell alone. They still keep trying to come sleep on my balcony at night, but I keep shooing them away. One is brave, the other - not so much. One will sit and stare at me for a long time and I have to really put on a show to make him fly away. Last night, they huddled in a window ledge on the building across from me and blinked all pigeony-like at my balcony.
5. I am still very allergic to bird poo.
I saw daddy pigeon givin' mama pigeon the bidniz the other day too (and in front of the kids!). NOT IN MY BACKYARD, HEATHENS! I haven't seen the parents in a good while. I'm assuming they made a new lovenest somewhere. But Scro and Tum keep finding their way back to me.
Oh, and yesterday a guy at work goes.. "Hey! Did you see my babies on Facebook?"
Me: What babies?
Him: I have a pigeon nest on my balcony! Wanna see the pics?
