On Top of the World

Clara loves pigeons. I think her pigeon love may have started with a young barn pigeon she tried (and sadly failed) to rescue a few years ago. Since then she has successfully raised multiple pigeons by hand. Young or sick pigeons have accompanied us on family vacations and at least half the time she has a pigeon living in her room with her for reasons that we at least tell her Dad are quite valid.

Last fall, for her birthday, we wanted to get her some more pigeons. Plans were made, pigeons were promised, housing was constructed and six long months (for a ten year old) later, we made it to the big day.

Today Clara brought home a flock of pigeons that needed a new home and new person to love them.

Clara is truly on top of the world today!

And the pigeons are settling into their new home nicely too!

That last picture (the square one of course) is my contribution to today’s April Square’s challenge, theme “top” hosted by The Life of B.
