Long-Beak, is a extra projekt I have here in the Netherlands, she is my almost tame pigeon. She is coming to my balcony everyday between 09.00-12.00, for some seeds or cheese cube snack, kind of faithful nice bird. She has a genetically defective beak that grows faster than she can sharpen it. This may be because it becomes more difficult to get food and it can eventually lead to death. But I have taken on the case of trying to take care of her as best I can.
The movie in the link below is a part of my research assignment.

In February of 2021 she mate with a partner. She has now been away laying eggs for 3,5 week.
And when the snow came her beak was frozen, I retained an extra eye on her then. But she was able to still open her beak.
