Probably more likely it flew into a window at 70mph and broke its neck.


Cheerful as ever, Trev! It probably wasn't that because the evening before I saw (what I assume was) the same pigeon sitting huddled up at the edge of the neighbour's flat roof, looking a bit sorry for himself. I chucked a few sunflower kernels out to see if it would come down for them, but he wasn't up for it. The wood pigeons usually love them. He did move to another part of the flat roof but didn't look like he was interested in life anymore. Discovering him lying peacefully on his back with his wings folded across his breast like a sleeping angel (ok, little bit of poetic licence there) and nowhere close to a window makes me think it was just his time to go to that big pigeon coop in the sky. I gave him a decent send-off. Well, I put him in some undergrowth on some nearby wasteland, and then had a cup of tea.

Obviously, it is entirely possible that he might have choked to death on a sunflower kernel, but if you think I was gonna conduct a post mortem on a pigeon....

Hello, I was just recommended this site today and decided to sign up. I live in New Mexico, U.S.A. where there are lots of UFO stories and wide open spaces. I am interested in a lot of different things and will spend some time perusing the forums.

Welcome to the forum, JahaRa!

As Sollywos said, there's plenty to browse and a wide variety of vintage threads you're welcome to wake from their chthonic slumber.

Hi JahaRa. New Mexico must indeed be an interesting place to be! I expect your eyes are on the skies all the time. Have you spotted anything odd up there? Or have any of your friends and family reported anything? Looking forward to hearing....

Thank you. I have seen some UFO's or probably UAP's and I was with a group that all saw the action the first time. I will post something this weekend when I have time in the UFO section.

Yes, I have spotted a lot, most of it in the 80's. I will find a thread in the UFO section to add to.

Hi and welcome to the board, I'm sure you will get on well with a number of members here who love a bit of arts and craft, there are a number of animal related threads here, just have a browse through the various threads until you find one that takes your fancy, and don't be worried about posting anything you fancy, as long as it's not political :)

Hi!

Thank you very much.

That sounds good.

I sometimes think in rhyme so the fact you said I could post anything I like as long as it's not political means I can think in rhyme without worrying about the repercussions sounds good. :0)

Good to see you.
It's good to see you here too.
Don't read anything into this other than information you may not know, if you wish to have a private conversation you can 'private message' someone by clicking on their avatar and clicking 'start conversation' any PM's you receive will show as a number (of messages) on the envelope icon on the toolbar at the top of the screen, the lightning symbol refreshes the 'latest posts' , the bell tells you if you have any replays or 'likes' to your posts or if you are 'watching' any thread, tell you if new posts have been made, and the magnifying glass is a search tool as usual. :)
