Mama Gleig returning to tower with white pigeon she nailed in the air! The new fledglings perched on the lower roof were watching and screaming!

Naaaaa far from dumb, You've quite the sense of humor yourself you know. Takes a bit of brains to come up with the kinds of things you add to the site. Can't expect to understand everything I toss in.
It's probably someones HOMING Pigeon.............. being tagged like it was.
