The last thing I do every night before bed is hold Simon up in front of my face, tell him I love him, and say goodnight to him. Then I put him in his bed.
. . YESterday during the DAY, I held him in the same way and had an ordinary conversation with him. I guess he misunderstood because when I put him down he trotted right over and put himself to bed. He's such a sweetie.

The 1st most happy is when he is being cuddled and loved (that's most of the time).
Pigeons are very temperature tolerant ... comfortable at -30 to 110 or so.

MY FB COMMENT:
I never go anywhere without Simon except on those summer days when I can't leave him in the hot car ... but then I usually take him in the car anyway if visiting, or I take him into stores with me (not where there's food or medical). He just waits on the counter while I pay. He is quite welcome most everywhere I go. This is the hospital waiting room. The entire staff held him.
