Yes when I was about 10, I picked up a baby bird. It's beak seemed huge and I found a dead heron round the corner, so I thought it must be baby heron. I took it home, next door said no it was a pigeon. I hand raised it and taught it to fly ! Well I thought I had. When it took it's first real flight I didn't see it for 3 days but then he came back. Put a tea chest on the roof of the outside toilet for him to live in. Would feed him in the morning before school. Then when I came home would call him and he would fly down onto my shoulder for more food and fuss.

There was a pigeon who would wait for my daughter to get home from school every day and would land on her head. He would come in the house and walk around with the cats.

To all who call them rats with wings, it is Humans who spread disease! Current situation should be proof enough!

That was nice! I had a similar experience growing up on the farm; the one I raised was my pet for life; would fly to me, etc. I then got into racing pigeons and that was fun, too!

I knew I must have a squab in my shrubs when I kept seeing a pigeon fly down and walk through the undergrowth. Sure enough a few days later i saw it sat on my garden wall and was being fed by an adult the same size...! 😜
