||Helment crested pigeon|
||Pelham, North Carolina, USA|
is my pet pigeon, Buddy. I call him Buddy, because he is such a pal.
Every morning when I open my back door, he flies right up to where I am to
greet me. Then he follows me around as I walk about in my yard. He is not
in a cage, he flies freely, yet he doesn't leave. He is a Helment crested
pigeon. I got him several years ago, but don't know how old he was when I
got him, so am not sure of his age. We have become great friends since
then. We live in Pelham, North Carolina, USA, so the weather is usually nice and he
can be happy outdoors all year round! I never thought I would have a
pigeon as a friend, but now I do. And honestly, I am not sure if I am his
pet, or he is mine! Sure his leg band identifies him to the world as
belonging to me, but that's just according to silly people rules, I
suspect Buddy would say! In any case, we are friends.
