Frances – The Pigeon Of Plenty

Have to say, it’s not very often that I fancy a male pigeon, but Frances. I would.

Regardless of whether you agree or not, it’s a good story:

“Frances is an affectionate, irresistible white king pigeon who loves to follow Elizabeth Young around the house, pitter-pattering after her like a feathery dog. But he wasn’t always that way. Young, a San Francisco resident and accidental king pigeon rescuer, shares Frances’ story and the heartrending plight of these beautiful birds.”

    Oh wow, I was actually already reading Elizabeth Young’s pigeon blog at and we even donated some money to Mickacoo a while back. Great article, and Brian, I agree–Frances is darling. (Perhaps you would not go that far!)

    One day, perhaps we will learn.
    In the meantime, I’m so thankful there are people like this who care.
    Francis is amazing.
    But then again, most pigeons are.
