Meet Lady Grey

A frequent balcony visitor of mine, Lady Jane Grey. Lady Grey and her husband Sir Thomas Grey drop by a few times a day to check if there might be food and to hang out. They spend hours grooming themselves and each other and napping. Last night they hung out until almost 8pm before flying home to roost. They were here first thing this morning, ever hopeful the concrete had materialised seeds.

Lady Grey is the perfect colour grey for a pigeon to my eyes. She's all lavender and pinky grey at the neck and light on the body. She has two black wing stripes which set off her grey nicely. She looks all cute and kind, but has been known to chase other female pigeons away (both from food and her Mr.).

Yet she is no where near as cantankerous as the Female pigeon currently going by the name of 'Beaks McGraw'. Beaks is the maddest, baddest female pigeon on the block. She takes on the boys and shows them who is boss. She gives them a right smacking and they stay away. I'd show you a picture, but she might smack me too.

  1. I love your birdy stories. And they have such good names too! Perhaps you need to write a children's book on birds soon.
