Extended family out there

I technically never had any animals as pets (yet) in my life. I always wanted a dog(s). I even like love cats and turtles. Well although I might have never had ‘pets’ but my home has been a breeding place home for hundreds of pigeons and sparrows for over a decade. A good part of the family income goes into feeding them you can day! 😀 Here some images from 2007 which I dug up from my hard disk.

Here is a sparrow family. At the same place outside the window, a sparrow family is always there even at the moment as I type this. They make a pretty dam mess though with their nests and shit (I mean literal shit, but not as much as the pigeons).

Aren’t baby sparrows so adorable? Pardon the low quality pics, all of these were taken by my ‘smart’ phone as it was known back then (now just a joke right?) good old Sony Ericsson W580i. It’s phoneography month too so that serves well. And here are some photographs of a pigeon family. I know, here pigeons (and crows) are more of an annoying sight as you find them everywhere, but not the same as watching them hatch and growing up 🙂 (also I feel like belonging to the order of the assassins from the Assassin’s Creed games) 😀

If you’re wondering why in some the bird(s) is fluffed up, well they inflate like a balloon when they feel cold or frightened. Even after seeing and eating from me everyday, those ungrateful bitches 😛

The final image is the babies fully grown up. And as a bonus here is me back then.

Back in the day with less hair and well, less fat 😛

I ought to take more now since I got a good camera phone. In the recent years squirrels have taken a liking to my home too, lets see if I can manage to get some pics in their state of harmony.

  6. Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.

    I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.
