NEW YORK —
A few weeks ago, my wife Fran saw something on the escalator at the Franklin Avenue subway station in Bedford --
A community in Brooklyn, New York City.
It was a little pigeon, too shocked to move, and got caught and hurt at the top.
So she held the bird on her lap and took it home on the train.
The train was packed with people.
The passengers greeted the pigeons with curiosity and disgust.
"What are you doing with that dirty thing?
Asked a woman.
An old man wondered if Fran was going to eat it. No, she said.
I'm going to save it.
We put the dirty bird in a box in the bedroom.
Fran called the Wildbird Fund, a rehabilitation center in Upper West Side of Manhattan.
She was told to bring it in.
Every spring, the basement of the Wildlife Fund is filled with orphan pigeons.
There were more than 150 people that day.
I was going to leave the pigeon there, but the fund gave you another option: learn how to take care of it and save it until it can fly.
It looks like a lot of work, but it's fun if you're not afraid of getting your hands dirty. Sure, I said.
There is a small problem: I also have to bring home a "bird" for us to learn and contact.
We named our bird Willet.
Rita McMahon, director of the Bird Fund, said he was two or three weeks old. His brown-and-
The white mark made him "red" on the pigeon"
Claims of reproduction
His companion, Sunflower, was a week older than him, dressed in traditional black.
A prohibited uniform for a pigeon in New York City. (
We call these birds "he", but we don't really know the sex of them.
Pronouns are difficult. )
McMahon showed me how to feed the birds by shoving and smashing
The puppy ate it with a wolf.
This action imitates the way their parents spit food into their mouths.
She taught me how to wrap a pigeon like a burrito so that it can be fed still and still.
She taught me how to feed seeds with plastic tubes.
A pigeon stores food in a bag near the throat called a crop.
I can feel the seeds of wild animals like gravel in a soft leather sac.
McMahon spread Willet's wings with their intricate fan-shaped feather pattern.
"You will be a very beautiful bird," she said . "
On the subway people want to know what's in my pink pet car.
I said, "baby pigeon . "Brows furrowed.
At home, I turned our bedroom into a pigeon mat. Our 12-year-
My daughter Violet and I took turns feeding the birds.
It's messy and harder than it looks.
We had them practice flying in the bathroom, but they just hid under the sink.
The week passed: in the morning and evening, soak the puppy to feed, feed the birds, and scrub the poop on the floor.
When the birds sit at the table by the bed and watch her read, Fran likes it very much.
She said: "thinking all day, 'I can't wait to go home and see what those birds are doing. '.
Bird raising makes me feel connected to the city.
When I saw the pigeons on the street, I thought, "Hey, I know those guys!
"One day, in the bathroom, the sunflower flew so hard that the breeze pushed him to the tile.
He seems to have discovered the principle of flight.
Most of the time, the birds eat by themselves.
I feel like a parent.
Pride, but not so important to their existence.
Their bodies are also changing.
They lost their soft yellow head feathers and their eyes turned from gray to black to golden brown.
On the 11 th, I first saw sunflowers flying from the floor to the roof of their small aircraft carrier.
Small distance, big steps.
Two days later I opened the door to the bathroom and both birds were at the top of the sink.
They spent almost the same time with us.
I found the woman who brought the little sunflower to the Wild Bird Fund.
She is a continuous bird rescue worker and will not let her name be published due to the landlord's troubles.
She said that one afternoon she returned to her apartment in Manhattan and found that another Fukang with a key left a box of things for the week --
Old pigeon baby in the bedroom
The birds were found at a construction site.
One of them is sunflower.
I asked her if she wanted to see how he grew up. She agreed.
We met at the park.
I imagined a happy party.
When I opened the door of the transporter, the woman glanced at it and muttered to Willet and sunflowers.
They are round and sweet. looking! " she said.
But then she started telling me horror stories about the life of pigeons in wild cities.
How they were tracked by cats and eagles, or collectively captured during pigeon shots in Pennsylvania.
They were injured in various ways.
Look at the pigeons you see stumbling around on rough feet.
"Andy, they're safe with you . "
"You care about them, protect them, feed them and make sure they don't get hurt.
You can't guarantee that once they're here.
"Is your wife not interested in them?
"We all feel attached to them," I said . ""So keep them.
"But whatever that means, we want them to have a normal pigeon life.
For the next 10 years, we don't want to wash bird droppings.
After cleaning a few days, I found a feather.
I put it in the drawer and thought it was empty. nest feeling.
On the 18 th, we returned to the Wild Bird Fund with white Wright and sunflowers and kissed them goodbye.
They went to the pigeon's social training camp in the basement.
While they were there, McMahon decided that Willet might be a woman. Pronouns again.
Last Wednesday, McMahon put a little Swan and another pigeon in a cardboard box. (
Sunflower time is coming soon. )
We went to Central Park on foot.
There are a group of pigeons under a spreading chestnut tree.
I put the box down and open it.
Willet jumped out, paused, and flew into the middle of the flock.
Then she flew to the tree.
First is the lowest branch, then the higher branch.
I looked down.
I looked back and Willet was gone.
