There are five pigeons in the barn right now, bait birds for the Swedish Hawk Trap I am borrowing from a neighboring falconer. Even though I wasn't able to trap on Saturday, there is still a slim chance I will get all my paperwork in order before it snows and could possibly trap later in this week. It's a long shot, but just in case I have everything here from traps to bait. These guys are quiet, enjoying round-the-clock care and a window in the back of the barn. If I can't trap they will go back to their pigeon house, at another falconer's home. I'm not very enamored with them, but I see the appeal. For me, I'll stick with chickens.
