it's a noise I'm comfortable with as it's from my childhood on the farmsmile, but I feel your pain. Eventually you don't hear it...

when i lived at my dads (ie for 25 years of my life) they used to sing on the phone line cable by my bedroom window, and if my window was open they would come IN my window and sing to me at 4am on my windowsill (inside my bedroom shock).

At uni we had so many they put spikes on the window ledges.

I find i here les pigeon noises when camping than i do at home!

I think the thing which started it off was there there was one pigeon at the first site which sounded really pissed off.

The first long "hoooooo" was really shrill, you know, the slightly shouty shreaky sound you make when you're trying to make your point and no one's listening.

Had visions of other pigeons up in the trees going "OFGS shut up about it" and pulling faces like this hmm

Thats nothing. We had peacocks waking us up every morning where we camped. Now they do make a noise grin

But were they Exasperated, like our local wood pigeon. Well? Well?

My DD says they are saying Je vooooo draaay, I don't speak French but I think she means "I would like".

Make a pie with them!

I always think they're saying "you're dinner's ready you're dinner's ready"
Stems from playing out when I was young.

I would happily punch any of them in the beak if it would make them stop. The ones near us are grotesquely overweight with their big wobbly pigeon beerguts spilling down to their ankles. They can hardly fly and they spend all their time trying to shag each other.

Does it not strike anyone as odd that they hoot in 4/4 (you know, four beats in a bar?) perfectly in time everytime.

I think that's weird.

bloody pigeon stalked us at sandy balls, managed to get in the tent and poo on ds1's bed

ds1 was unimpressed

we, however, came very close to an actual demo of the phrase 'PMSL'

DH used to get atatcked by one weekly

They didn't attack anyone and were wandering freely, but at 4am................
