Expanding the Pigeon Enclosure

Outdoor projects continue at my Bedford, New York farm.

As you may know, I have about 20 fancy pigeons. I’ve had them for more than three years. A number of the birds were featured in the well known New York City “Fly by Night” performance by artist Duke Riley and were members of Duke’s personal flock. My pigeons live in a protected enclosure adjacent to my peafowl pen. Pigeons have been domesticated for thousands of years and have been kept by people worldwide for their companionship, their sport, and their loyal service. Caring for these birds is a nice way to pay tribute to the pigeon and to learn all about these fascinating creatures. Recently, I decided it was time to expand their yard to give them a bit more room to fly.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
