White Siamese Racing Pigeon

On Wednesday, this little visitor arrived on the deck at work.

We didn't know if she was injured, but she looked very tired. So I brought her some bird seed and water.

When I put the food down she came walking right towards me, and only stopped about a foot away. She gobbled up the seed and drank a lot of water!

She was very hungry, but didn't appear to be hurt in any way. From some online research it was discovered that she was a White Siamese Racing Pigeon. A look at her tag told us she was from Triverton, RI.

So she decided to hang out for awhile...

A man that used to work here who currently owns and breeds pigeons stopped by to take a look. He said that she had lost a lot of weight and looked "stunned". He gave her some special pigeon food, which she really liked, and brought her home to take care of her and make her healthy again. So she is doing well and in good hands, and may soon be reuntied with her owner.

For me... it was a nice little distraction for the day.

Do you remember the time a pigeon stopped by TBF? People do raise them for racing and they do get "lost" and tired from time to time. This one is pretty.
