Visiting My Fancy Pigeons

It's always nice to see my pigeons outside their dovecote enjoying the warm summer breezes.

Here at my Bedford, New York farm, I keep a small group of pigeons - Homers, Tipplers, Tumblers, as well as one of the oldest breeds, the Syrian Damascene. They live in a pen adjacent to my geese and peafowl yards and across from my stable. 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 these fascinating and intelligent creatures.
