Thats a great piece U narrated on tha N.P.R. joint Mr. Scott I have a familey of baldhead rollerz that I’ve been sculpting into what I believe is one of the soon to be most talked about(,or maybe I’m just tooting my on horn) roller strain of birds that are,well just out of sight! Now your name (the Scott Name) proceeds it’s self. You boys have doing, to my knowledge, thing that others only dream to. So with that said I would like to some how offer or astablish a type of common ground.

A pigeon (rock dove) adopted me this past July. He lives on my house and I want to make sure he has shelter for the winter. I’d also like to know more about carding for him. Any advice I’d be grateful for…. Thank you, Nina
