How much would you pay for a pigeon?

You know, those sky rats…

Well? How much?

What someone actually did pay for a pigeon is below the fold.No kidding, 238,000 US dollars.

Not quite sure what to say about that.

    Shhhh, I have one Pigeon, out the back in the cage, [used to be two, but Princess passed away last year, she was white and very pretty], Jackie is her name, and came via my son-in-law, after a cat managed to kill all but the last two.

    Oh yes, forgot about the lot down the back, “Spanish Pigeons”, very tame and fat, believe they were meant for eating, but they are seeing out their days here, now down to the last six [there were eleven].

      That is a very enjoyable story of your cat bing, sounds like it was a beauty, speaking of cats is the little girl you have now, in Kitten?

      Don’t mind if I do have another Tim Tam Sean, would you like another cup of tea? Or do you prefer coffee?

        We think she might be. She ate heaps today. And Merilyn? It’s Friday. Give the man a beer.

      Oops, sorry Merilyn. Being a bit dyslexic today.

      PS. I feed the local birds all JB’s leftovers every morning. It’s like “The Birds” here at my place. We wonder down to the creek in the evening to feed the bloody Ducks. Alfred, would be proud.

    • Mmm, piiiiigeon.

    Memo to self, do not invite bing in for a cup of tea and TimTam until ALL pigeons have departed this earth.

    Sean, I also feed the locals [as we call them] each day, they also have water in which to bath, [Magpies love their bath] and drink. At the moment there are Galahs down to back, much to the Magpies disgust. We have to keep an eye on the Native Pigeons as the Falcons will swoop at great speed and snatch them. Saw a Falcon fly through the tree and snatch one not long ago, darn Pigeon didn’t take heed of the warning from the other birds, we have noticed they sound a warning call and the birds all go silent.

    • Phwar, that’s a bit harsh. I’m not even the one who linked to that delicious-looking morsel!

      There’s a birdbath in the old folks front garden that the lorrikeets would have a splash in.

      Also, used to love feeding the kookaburras raw meat from our balcony back in the day, out of the hand sometimes.

      Other times, we just left meat out on the railing for them. The old cat would come out of the kitchen, crouch down low and – no shit – imitate a kookaburra’s call.

      They were always onto him, though.

      Not so some of the other birds who used to play with him down in the front garden. Occasionally, one would swoop too low.

      I love the two cats we have now (although the girl can be a menace when I’m trying to sleep!), but geez my first one was great.

      He’d bring food to the front door, you know, contributin’… even if it was a dead mouse.

      When I broke my arm as a young kid, he slept on the end of my bed every night until the cast came off.

      What a champ.

      (No, not drinking. Just your and Sean’s anecdotes made someone feel a little sentimental.)

        I had a chuckle, too, BB. Anyway, obviously it’s all Tony Abbott’s fault.
