[Tweeters] band-tailed pigeons

This is the season for band-tails. I now have about 25-30 at my feeders
daily. The downside is that when they flush for whatever spooked them, the
poop does land on my car or walkways at times.
They are wonderful to watch, the chatter they have, the pecking order,
and above all if the feeders get empty at least one will fly over to my
window, hit it gently, slide down and hang on to the outside sill for a few
seconds, then fly back up the top of the feeder. Repeat several times until
I come out and fill the feeders.
Amazing how they learned that the light in the window meant someone
was in there that could fulfill their food needs if only they flew towards
the light and the ritual slide that followed.
