Blogging about Pigeons in Mexico!!

There are large flocks of pigeons everywhere you go in Mexico; there are even songs written & works of art dedicated to them. However, you really don't want them living in the eaves of the house, which seems to be the case next door to us! The eaves of the house were left open to the elements when building was completed in October. There must not have been an American style "final walk through" before the homeowners moved on November 1st because the open eaves would have been a problem for most people buying a new house. Really incredible that this gaping hole escaped notice!! Our cat has been quite watchful in the mornings as there have been pigeons living in the eaves of the house for sometime now. Katerina is quite the sentry watching from an upstairs window & seeing all of the Springtime bird activity! And while she is VERY disappointed that the eaves are no longer going to house her favorite prey I am sure the birds will find a new bird home to relocate somewhere nearby. And, who knows that could be the house next door once again. The big solution for closing up the open eave was to have some guy stand on a ladder & shove a piece of Styrofoam in the eave space! It only took him 5 trips up the ladder to get the Styrofoam cut to the right size... Real high tech solution! I believe even the pigeon can figure this one out!

Pigeons without homes in Mexico run the risk of being dinner, especially in Oaxaca! Tequila & Pigeon??? hmmm...
