There is a saying that goes: Seek first to understand.

I tried this with Pauly last few days and it has been a big help. Helps me to let him live his life at his pace. He is also getting more used to my voice, behavior and body language. This makes things a lot easier.

Today Pauly was frustrated early morning. Soon I wokeup I have to brush my teeth etc., However, guess he was hungry and wanted food first, I couldn't attend to him first thing in the morning, so he got angry and flapped his wings around a lot showing his displeasure until I turned to help him.

Second time around, he flew around a lot, knocked of a nice bottle and its lid broke. So I removed all bottles in this area where he perches often. This time he was more bored and wanted attention. Presently I am giving him just sunflower seeds as treats, got a few more packs today, these are cheap. However, for variety and to keep him more happy I should explore other treats that I can offer him, even some sweet treats if possible.

It is almost 3 months since I got Pauly, he wants lots of cuddles but doesn't come to me when called, doesn't perch on my shoulder, this is ok. He only spends very brief moments
close to me.
I was informed that there is quiet extermination of pigeons locally, hence the local feral pigeon flocks have greatly reduced in number. This seems to explain perhaps why Pauly seemed so needy. There is a chance that his parents and rest of their flock were exterminated, so poor Pauly was not fully weaned, facing big trauma and wanted care, safety, love. I am very glad to do my best for him.

Moscow had record snowfall recently, less food for the pigeons outside in such cold weather, however the pigeons need more calories to survive in the cold, if not specially the older, weaker pigeons will die. Hats off to heroes like this who brave the cold and feed feral pigeons:

Now I have a feeling that Pauly can be a she perhaps. The initial head bobbing I saw was more a symptom from hunger and weakness it appears. Pauly doesn't bob head and dance around as much after the first week or two of my rescue. Pauly wants only brief interaction with me, is reserved, less physically active. Now the final confirmation will be if an egg is laid, then I will know for sure Pauly is female.

Pauly is becoming a lot more comfortable with me and pecks me a lot more softly these days.
I put him in a temporary transport cage when City inspectors came to inspect my apt. recently, he was
quiet and they didn't notice him. One of them will return again in future. For now I am glad and can't complain.

Pauly is getting more comfortable with me, wants sun flower seeds like 4 at a time and likes to play with my fingers as I offer them to him. Watching him interact with me is a treat for my other parrots. He also likes to sit by the back door window and watch outdoors for a few hours. I need to get him to more around more in a positive manner without scaring him, he is too sedentary for now. This is not healthy in the longer run.

City inspector just came and forced me to release pigeon, so I just did this.
As per law am not allowed to keep wild bird. He flew out immediately and didn't return,
So in a way this is good. He has not returned and seemed happy to leave so is ok.
Big city lots of apartments. Was told to release him even if he returns, if I
keep him they will call the SPCA and they will release him somewhere else far.

This was 4 hours ago almost, saw him on top of bldg., now, he already found a friend it appears, called to him and he flew away. So if he is happy outdoors it is all good.
