"Egyptians Discover Water".... Pigeons

150218 Headlines = "Egyptians Discover Water"... Because I deprived them of their daily warm cup of water for a day and a half, the Egyptian Swifts finally got thirsty and discovered the Chickens perpetual water supply. Now my neighbor won't need to fill their water cup everyday while I'm gone. Now I finally have proof they actually did find it and won't die of thirst while I'm gone.
Trail cam comes in handy once again ~:<)
From the video, looks like they were pretty thirsty.

Isn't he cute ?






In response to Jim Wilkins quest to post pictures of baby animals... (Positive stuff, not negative images and videos)
Not certain, but I believe this is a Budapest Pigeon, fancy pigeon breed category. Probably 6 days old?
