Okay, this might seem a little strange, but i feel like sharing anyway..
This year, I've developed an unusual appreciation of these birds.
Most people I know have a rather negative view of them, due to their scavenger nature.
Flying rats is a common name for them where I come from.:-( poor things, so much negativity aimed at them for no reason.

As for me, I've been seeing them in a different light all year. I notice how beautiful and varied their plumage can be. Blues, browns, purles, greys, whites, do colorful, if you take a moment to look at them.
At first it seemed strange to me, when I began noticing myself, noticing them.
It seemed like everywhere I went, I'd see the most beautiful specimens.
Now when I look back, I remember an experience I had one morning. I'm not sure if this was the beginning of this appreciation, or a result of it...

I had just woken, and was lying still in bed.
I had a short vision, a white dove flew down and landed on the ground in front of me.
I looked at it. It looked at me.
I sent it a mental greeting, a little unconditional love.
I felt a grateful response.
The bird looked at me, and began to glow.
Whiter and whiter, brighter and brighter.
So bright I couldn't see it any more. So bright it shouldve hurt my eyes.
As I watched, the light began to fade, and where the pigeon had been, a tiny angel stood.
Beaming this light of love at me, it was beautiful.
I felt so grateful for having been allowed to see this being. I knew it was only because I'd sent it love that it permitted me to see it then.

Now whenever I see one of these birds, I say hello. And if I have something for them to eat, they get it.

I just wanted to share that with you good people.:-)
