Monkey-B Spooks The Pigeons 🕊️ Paramaribo, Suriname

Goofing around with the @KidSisters yesterday, I asked Monkey-B to go and spook the pigeons that always congregate around the chicken coop, but I didn't realize it would be such a great photo opportunity.


🏃‍♀️ GO MONKEY, GO!!

     After finishing our daily Hive posts we generally go outdoors and try to kick the ball around, play some frisbee, do some foraging, take nature photos, and sometimes Monkey-B goes to check on the baby chicks in the landlord's chicken coop.

     A "kit" of unemployed pigeons often loiter around the chicken coop stealing whatever food they can. They are easily spooked and take flight whenever someone approaches, so I asked Monkey-B to run over and give em' a good scare.

     Sometimes things work out exactly as you imagined they would, and I managed three successive rapid pictures of the pigeons taking flight on a cloudy day. I'm not going to pretend I knew a group of pigeons is called a "kit," but I did take the time to research it for this post.

     It is hard to tell, but Monkey-B was frozen in fear for the few short seconds that I snapped these three shots. The sound of all those wings flapping still startles her even when she's ready for it, but I remain afraid of being pooped on from above directly into my eye, something that has happened once before while cycling.

     Anyhow, this was a joyous a beautiful moment in time, and I was lucky to capture it, and this made me want to share it with you all. I love seeing life through the eyes of my daughters because it makes the mundane see exciting and the old seem new.

Funny we see these birds bounce back and forth from our roof to the chicken coop all day, but never thought to try and capture it. !ENGAGE 10

I like pigeons and really don't understand that people need to spook them. Is it a poop issue? Or are they a threat somehow to the chickens? Curious. We have a nesting pair of pigeons at the entrance to our office - just become a daily job to sweep and hose it clean. I do so love the happy sound they make sitting on top of the window sill.

They fly between this coop and our roof hundreds of times a day, and a trail of poop exists between the two spaces, not making for sanitary conditions. Also, the landlord kills one or two every now and then and eats them, so we wish the pigeons would leave for good, but they are kept by the rice the landlord gives them every day. It's a bummer too because there are so many beautiful parrots and other birds that won't stop here because of these unemployed winged loiterers. !ENGAGE 35
