It seems that my pigeon deterrence installations of a few weeks ago weren't quite as successful as I'd hoped. Over the past few days what had just been hanging out under our eaves has reverted to a major nest building operation.
Obviously I will have to initiate a nest removal operation later this morning or early this afternoon.
Another worrying trend is that the appearance of dead birds in our backyards, at least as of a few days ago, has continued. On the same day I even found two just feet apart from each other.
Of course, it took me a little longer to spot the one hiding in the fence.
On a more positive note, aside from the bird nest removal project we're also hoping to finally get around to planting our garden (after we add another few bags of peat moss and topsoil to the clay base that is Regina soil).
