I'm sad to announce that my Pigeon pal died this morning. Perhaps he wasn't so tame perhaps he was just so unwell that he couldn't be bothered flying off. Perhaps he thought I could make him well again. Do Pigeons think to the point of reasoning? Anyway just before lunch I went to put up the new bird table I made yesterday and there he was outside my Study. There was no sign of injury of any sort and he'd not been dead very long. I say that not because I have any special knowledge of the period at which rigor mortis sets in but because I saw him feeding earlier on in the morning. So I've made a note of his ring number and I'll see where racing pigeons are registered and let them know. I don't like Pigeons in general but I'd grown quite attached to this one.
