I was outside earlier today and took a break from whatever I was doing, and on the house roof there was a white pigeon! At first I thought it was wild, but a second look showed me there was a yellow/orange band on it's left leg. I wanted to catch it -- I thought maybe it was lost and I should keep it and post in lost/found somewhere. But I couldn't catch it, and the camera was no where to be found (still can't find it). It was white, pink legs, and just downright gorgeous. It hung out on my roof for a while. I tried coaxing it down with grain and then some cucumber seeds (I have no idea what pigeons eat...), but it wouldn't come down. Then it flew out past our garden to where the pigs used to be and I followed it, and found it eating stuff off the ground. Then it flew over to the driveway and ate stuff there. Then it flew away, and I thought it was gone, but a few minutes later I saw it in the cow pen. And then it flew away, after circling the field for a while.
Anybody in my area lost a white pigeon? Delaware/Otsego county, or near there? Sorry I couldn't get a picture or catch it...I must admit I kind of wanted to keep it... But I have no idea what I'd do with a pigeon.
