If you are missing a pet pigeon, it might be at a Northwest Valley animal shelter.
The pigeon is sporting a rhinestone vest, a sign that it belongs to someone.
A woman found the pigeon in Glendale, near 61st Avenue and Bell Road, over the weekend. It was wearing a bedazzled flight suit, and the woman turned it over to the Fallen Feathers Bird Rescue in Peoria.
This bedazzled bird has since captured the hearts of hundreds on social media.
“She had it in a box with a towel thrown over the top of it, and I opened it up, and we took him out, and there he is with all of his bling,” said Fallen Feathers director Jody Kieran.
Kieran said she does not know if the bird is a male or female, but she does think the bird is less than six months old, and is clearly a house pet.
“A wild bird naturally flies to light, and this guy kind of hangs on your shoulder,” said Kieran. “He’s not looking to get out of here. So, he’s definitely used to being in someone’s home.”
The pigeon even likes to watch TV, and does seem to love all the attention.
“He watched a Western the other day with my daughter, so he does like Westerns, if that’s a clue to who the owner is,” said Kieran, “So, maybe he’s a Rhinestone Cowboy! haha! I don’t know.”
If no one claims the pigeon, Kieran said there are other options.
“We would try to get him wild and see if we can get him to join a flock,” said Kieran. “Chances are he’s missed the boat on that one, and we will have to try and find him a home, and if I can’t, I guess I’m going to have to get matching outfits!”
