We’re half-way through 24th Oct  -  and it’s 1.14 p.m ‘Sneg’ just landed on his feet...having flown down from his basket,  for the first time.  He’d always fallen on his chest so this is an improvement!
Sumac Tree in our Garden

He seems to be giving ‘social’ grooming and handing over the odd crumb....which is so nice of him.

Tuesday 25th Oct  -  ‘Himself’ is putting some food together for us humans and ‘Sneg’ has decided to go around with him travelling on his right foot....feeling very attached.

I have noticed one difference on ‘sneg’...his feet have grown....bit like us  as teenagers growing in fits and starts !   He is a very good listener and shows this by putting his head on one side.

Sneg ran up to the lounge door and had the sense not to step any further into the lounge as seemed to know “it was Dog territory” and stood watching the Dr.Who programme on t.v.   His personality is showing day by day and what a joy to rescue such a beautiful, intelligent, loveable species such as him.

Wednesday 26th  Oct  -  Dark heavy Clouds lurk across the early morning sky...so not much to look forward to, hey but we have the pleasure of our Animals!

Sneg is always pleased to see us in the mornings and promptly gives  us the usual greeting of flapping of wings and squeaking.

3.25 p.m  Sneg turned himself around in a reverse style, as though to say “please pick me up “?  He doesn’t like being detached from us......”What an honour it is little guy” to share your homely thoughts....I can’t say Nesting.....he hasn’t got one now.
Thursday 27th Oct  -  Another grey sky hiding the hazy looking blur of sun.

Lots of really nice peeps have been asking about ‘Sneg’ and all the good wishes sent have been passed on to him because he does listen, good and clear.   Good friends: hen4, Val, Jane, Glo_man  Freyjasgal , LoPelYr  and many more kind peeps have been asking how he’s doing.

He is quite a character and follows or scoots alongside wherever we walk in the kitchen/dining area, would scoot straight past if could but keeps his speed to ours, sort of comes to a skid.

He was up late tucking into a ‘latenight’ snack at 10.p.m....think we must have been creating so much activity  downstairs that he wanted to be a part of it !

Friday 28th Oct  -  It’s well and truly fab outside today, although had to clean a little ice off the car windscreen before driving off for a Dentist appointment.

Arrived back from the Dentist having had a clean and brush-up for myself and Son .  It’s 11.35 a.m and ‘Sneg’ is sat on the third stair up from the bottom and with the front door open he soaks up all the goodness from the natural sun.   3.37 p.m  he has crossed the front door step to outside...just for a quick glance.... then headed back in like a frantic ‘penguin’.....must have seen a predator out there!

We were all snug in the lounge this evening  all except 'Sneg' who was fast asleep.  Then  a sudden squeal from a  log in the woodstove startled both ‘Snooty’ and ‘Chuckie’ who promptly turned to look at each other (as they were lying alongside one another) they seemed to say  “Was that you”?  then they realised everything was fine because the ‘Beings’ would have said....and continued to lap-up the heat.

Saturday 29th Oct  -  Yep!  Its fine Rain......no it’s not fine, we’ve had too many days of it !

‘Sneg’ was sat on Himself’s right shoulder at 9. a.m and showed great excitement by squeaking as loud as he could for quite some time.

Oh no !  ‘Sneg’ is becoming a t.v. addict....watching Live n Deadly ‘Mantis Shrimps’ and knew not to cross onto the Dog’s territory......perhaps a mind thing going on here via the dogs.   After a few minutes he scoots off to do some more of that eating and is followed by ‘Snooty’ who goes to check his bowl and what exactly it was he was given ., aren’t they funny - she spat the seeds out after her one and only lick.

He has no parents to explain about the dangers of life and so must learn in other ways.

Sunday 30th Oct  -  A dry day at last !


Monday 31st Oct  -  Bloweeeeeee Rain in every corner !

Arrived downstairs to see ‘Sneg’ fast asleep and ‘Himself’ had already spoken to him earlier.  He soon awoke once again with the sound of my voice, then gave himself a jolly good preen. 

 He asked me for some of those tasty homemade breadcrumbs of which he seems to have taken a liking .  Its 8.07a.m and ‘Sneg’ is chasing me into the kitchen for more breadcrumbs....demands are great for a little fellow !  He’ll venture off up to the number three stair for a bit of ‘Wing’ practice, then settle himself down to rest or listen to his surroundings.

He has hot breath when up close and warm feet. 

 I call his name, he arrives scooting across the floor towards me  for his treats of crumbs!

‘Snegs’ Best moments yet to arrive !

‘ Flying ‘

We have turned another corner and fold into the month of  ‘NOVEMBER’

Tuesday Nov 1st  -  A treat to wake-up to a really light morning at 6.45 a.m, even though the hour has been put back an hour.  And our comfort foods are gathered into our cupboards ready for the chilly days.  With the many days spent ' hot stoving'  for those ‘Wild fruits’ stored into jars for jam and freezer full of ‘homegrown’ veg. gives us the feeling of satisfaction.

A Bright Sunny Day Ahead

Have just let the dogs outside for a few minutes and ‘Sneg’ has been caught going into the lounge....so he thought all was safe when they were out of the way...hey !  Cute Bird! He's got more about him than just poo !

1.10p.m  ‘Sneg’ decided, now that he was upon ‘Himself’s’  shoulder... once again... to go one step further down his back and of course this made it difficult for him to leave....eventually hopped off after being lowered down, more like wearing a large ‘insect’ ! 
My ‘wish-full thinking’ of a Pigeon’s Antics

 I do believe he’s giving a helping-beak to clean around.....WoW !  as I’ve just been round the house with the hoover again, I sincerely hope he doesn’t think that’s all there is to Life....as beyond the external doors lies a whole new type of living for a Pigeon’s ‘Adventures’.

A little Bird that fell from a great height, high up from the rafters in a Jewson’s Wood Store.....kinda took over the blog spot and why not.  He is recovering nicely after the bruised left foot and a slightly crumpled wing....a true survivor, I’d say !  Still a way to go yet and as his wing recovers he’ll soon find that flying skill, afterall it's what his Life is all about !!!

It’s  3.50 p.m and he’s waving with one wing....wanted to go up on the old chair arm where he has his snooze nowadays, he is still asleep at 5.10 p.m with a quick peek every now and then so as not to miss a thing.

Until  Next Time

Thank You
