I like pigeons, as long as they are in Trafalgar Square or the Gateway of India. I do not like them pecking new shoots from my plants, and I definitely do not like them flying into my bedroom, and trying it make a nest on top of the cupboard. But a fresh-air fiend like me, couldn't keep all the windows closed all the time, either.
Finally, I gave up the fight, and let the pigeon lay its eggs outside my bedroom window. I am not too happy about it. But at least the kids have something to keep them occupied.
