Ricardo, who I now call Ricky Ricardo, is a young king pigeon, only about 6 weeks old, that was picked up by SF ACC as a stray in Dolores Park on 5/23. I saw him on my visit on 6/2 and brought him home to be fostered in my loft, though I really don't have the extra room. He's about the same age as my "oops babies" and I figured it would be nice for them to have a friend and for him to get out of a cage and into the fresh air and relative freedom of my loft. Sadly, I had to leave six other kings behind, for now.
Ricky, as so many kings are, is a bit of a character- very dramatic and spooky until you pick him up and snuggle him when he gets all happy and melty. He's thrilled to be in the loft and is available for adoption.
