There was a small nest on our water tank next to kitchen. This was pigeons' and I as usual had soft corner towards it. This is the first time I ever get some bird to build a nest in our home. There were initially 3 eggs which came down to 2 and eventually only one hatched out. The pigeons were busy sitting on egg, feeding the baby, everything. But my maid kept warning me that pigeons are very dirty and dangerous, shoo them away while they build the nest itself. I ignored her and was happy to share them a home. But now after a week or two, the smell is too intolerable to stay inside and cook any food. I peeped up the tank to see sooooooooo many droppings on the tank, around the baby bird, everywhere. The smell was too tolerable to clean them. I have two young kids at home and also it is on drinking water tank. I got so scared. When I searched internet, there were several warnings like pigeons being compared as flying rats. It really brought my s** out of me as I am dealing with my kids health vs a poor baby pigeon and its parents. So with brave heart I called up my cleaner to clear it off. He took off the entire poops and the baby also and promised me that he will place it somewhere safe near by. God knows what he did to it. I thought the birds are smart enough to trace their baby but no. They couldnt and didnt. Now I feel so sorry for them as they keep coming and searching for their baby. I feel so guilty and like have committed a great sin. I cant bear the "puthra sogam" of theirs. It has been 3 days and still on grief and keeps coming and sitting on the tank again and again and again. I am also scared that it may affect me and my kids too... already have nightmares of losing my younger DD and now this has added fuel to the fire that I spend sleepless nights. I feel so pity on looking at the pigeons. Cant bear the piercing eye contact of them. Any thoughts anybody??
