“I speak to them and they speak to me in their language.. The thirsty bird tells me that I am thirsty, and the one who needs to take a shower makes a certain movement. I know that he wants to take a shower.” This is how “Uncle Samir” began his interview with the “Fathi Show” program, presented by Muhammad Fathi Abdel Ghaffar on Al-Youm Al-Sabea TV, telling his story With pigeons, doves, and sparrows, why do they come to his window every day?
Samir’s uncle says, “I was born with pigeons in which we understand each other very well, and in a rigid language between us. I mean, imagine when you say, ‘Come, come, walk, walk.’
And he continued, “I have a pigeon, the only one in Egypt who can fly at night because he has something called kohl that does not have eyelashes around his eyes, meaning that he flies at night. He goes to the bathroom, and he comes down and stands inside him, and he is empty, so he wants to take a shower.”
And he continued, “Okay, I removed the plate, and it goes inside my base in the basin of water, and he is the one who takes me from here.
And he added, “When he wants to eat, he comes to humiliate me while I am sitting at work, but he is humiliated with a sense of humor. He likes to peck at anything he grabs from in front of me. Anything in front of me. I’m going to get him to eat. He likes to wake me up in the morning, knowing the kindness!
And he continued, “When I was upset, by God Almighty, three of him would stand on my shoulder while I was sitting and he did not do anything except that he is a worker. He looks at me like this. I tell him there is no need. He will stand on my hands, on my shoulder, or on my brain, unless he feels safe.”
