Penny’s Pigeon Aid Group

Public·46 Pigeon People!

Hi everyone! Here is my story-


My name is Maddie. I started a small business and a not offical non profit called Pigeon Patroll ( I still spell Patroll with 2 L’s), to help birds when I was 8 years old. I started Pigeon Patroll at my old home in Layton, Utah in 2020.


Early in the year of 2020, there were two pigeons that started to come around everyday. I named them Molly and Peter. In February 2020, we figured out that Molly and Peter had built a nest between two of our huge plant pots. Molly had laid two perfect and white eggs.


The eggs hatched and I named the two baby pigeons Cuckoo and Coco Puff. Everyday I would sit in front of the glass door and watch the pigeons for hours. I wrote everything I learned from them in a journal. Watching Cuckoo and Coco Puff…

Hey Maddie, Pigeon Patroll sounds amazing! I love the bird magnets you're making, and it's great that you've been able to raise so much money for bird charities ❤️ 🙂

Wow! What an amazing story in the news and that's how I find myself here. As a child I was freaked out by pigeons and it was amazing to me that they are now my favourite bird. They way they problem solve, their funny walk, their little heads bobbing back and forth, love 'em!

Over the years we've had a few pigeons who've fallen down our chimney (it's now capped!) and I was amazed that I could get over my fear and rescue them. Some were fine, one or two needed extra care and time, one didn't make it....

My favourite definitely was the crazy one who made it all the way down and started flying around my living room!

My saddest moment was seeing a juvenile pigeon in distress in the garden, after some love and care the poor thing still passed away but at least he was cared…

I have recently added several bird and bee feeding stations to my garden. Amongst my daily bird visitors I have a flock of 6 to 8 wood pigeons who are so serene as they wander around my garden - all the birds are beautiful but these chunky darlings are lovely to see and listen to.

I also love to see them wandering on the lawn or cooing on the fence. Love them all.
