I read the first article about this topic in the the straight dope in book format about ten years ago. I was then very excited a few months ago when pigeons nested on my neighbors window sill. The definitely leave the nest full size.
How do i show my photo on this board???
You got it right. You can only link to an image, not show it inline.
And link to the column in question: http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/16/where-are-all-the-baby-pigeons
Welcome mctc. Enjoy your stay with us.
great photos. Nice to have close access to the chicks. I see they were also two. I wonder if that is a very common number for them.
Yes, it’s usually two, although in the last couple of batches we had, one egg was unfertilized.
