When a couple recently took their marriage vows at a church in Barnegat, a pair of white pigeons or doves was released outside of the church. Sadly, they stayed close to the church, seeking shelter, food and protection from the hawks that are heavily populated in the area. After staying by the church for 5 days, the pigeons had become a nuisance to them. The church called Popcorn Park and we have taken them in until a suitable home can be found for them.
Many times in the past, doves and/or pigeons have been released to celebrate the nuptials and the birds have not been as fortunate as this pair and tragically, met a long and lingering demise. Please do not use live animals as you put their lives in jeopardy. Throw bird seed - throw confetti - make it a happy time for everyone.
