Pigeon Padgent

There's a myth here, some choose to believe, that if you look at a small pigeon in its nest, it will die. I was told this upon showing a colleague some pictures I had taken of a baby pigeon in my windowsill. Several others joined in to tell stories about how this myth is 'true'! When I asked if maybe it was because they touched the little birdie or interfered with it's nest or perhaps they scared the mother off too many times for her to return. They assured me that no, it was only by looking at the baby bird that would cause it's death. Naturally I couldn't believe this. But it did make me check on the little pigeon to make sure she was still alive. Here are some progress pictures of the little pigy. 

As you can see...she seems to be doing good. In case there is any truth to this myth. I only peek in on her every 3-4 days and get a couple of snaps of her. Man they grow fast

[Update June/15/2012 Birdie is still alive and well, looking a lot like mummy over there!]
