I mostly share stories about dogs and cats, but this is a story about birds! They live in Tennessee at my sister’s place. When I went to Tennessee to celebrate my nephew Daniel’s birthday, I met the flock once more – outside there are pigeons, chickens, ducks, pheasants, and guinea fowl. And inside, there are zebra finches and diamond doves.
They love their birds!
My sister and nephew really love those birds; they’ve named each one! I learned about the birds’ histories and personalities while visiting. They told me two male pigeons were causing problems with the hens. My nephew tried all sorts of solutions but sadly decided he had to find them another home.
Helping pigeons being rehomed
Well, hearing the plan, I connected with those pigeons to share that they were going to a new home. And I quietly set an intention that they’d find a good place. My nephew put them in a small doggie crate and we drove to the local flea market.
One of the vendors happened to be looking for pigeons for her daughter, and that was that! As they sat in her store, I sent them calming energy and reminded them that they were going to a new home.
Animal Communication mission incomplete
I thought I had completed my animal communication mission until I woke up the next day.
When I walked outside, I found ducks and chickens hovering around the doggie crate Daniel used to take the pigeons to the flea market. They peered inside, obviously (at least to me) wondering what happened to those pigeons.
Stopping next to them, I explained that they had a new home and weren’t coming back. But they were all right, so it was OK.
After I finished “sharing,” they immediately wandered away from the crate. They clearly “got it!” Next, I walked over to the birds in the fenced-in area. Again, I shared with those birds that the pigeons weren’t coming back but they were OK.
Those birds knew the pigeons were gone!
From my experience, most non-human animals create a relationship with each other. Humans are more likely to see this now. They notice when someone’s gone, hurt, or sick. From my experience, many react emotionally to these events.
You can explain changes to your animals
You don’t have to be an animal communicator to notice behaviors like Daniel’s ducks and chickens. Tell them what’s happening. Intend that they’ll understand at some level if you have a sincere desire to help them understand. Be compassionate. It’ll decrease your stress and theirs!

Let’s do an animal communication session!

Have you seen behaviors in your animals when someone leaves the household? I’d love to hear your story!
How do you explain death to an animal? (either their human or anther animal)
Lil, this is the short version. I explain that the animal’s energetic body steps out of their physical body when the physical body no longer works. And that they’re OK.
I take it the pigeons were being aggressive? Most interesting. Thanks for sharing!
Some of the happiest sounds in my life have been bird song. I’ve loved listening to them and watching them since I was a little girl. It’s heavenly to wake up to the sound of a Chinese rooster pheasant, and listening to quail. Another favorite is the Alaska Robins (Varied Thrush) that come by my home in the winter – not so much anymore 🙁 – to me their calls sound like flutes in various keys).
Susanna, I, too have loved listening to birds, I love cardinals! I saw a lot of quail in Monterey, California, but not so much in Virginia.
