  1. Even the lowly pigeon has a place and a beauty. People hating certain animals (cats, crows, etc.) has always seemed like … the feeling is too big to have for the innocent creature/s. I understand not wanting them on your roof or in your house, it’s all the hate that bothers me, especially when people act on the hate. 😦

  2. I like the surrounding green grass in this photo to features pretty and more noticeable pigeon. His colors seem to pop out as pale gray, lavender and the eye with beak so clear! Beautiful bird photograph, Deborah.

  3. It’s a great photo, Diana … even I have to agree with your description of a rat with wings. I’m not a fan. As much as I really like birds, this character and his cousin, the dove, are just annoying.

    1. They’re messy and not too bright. They build their nests on tiny little branches and boards, and the wind will knock it down and they rebuild right in the same spot.

      Thanks for the comment and compliment on the image though!

  4. The lush green, the yellow beak to rival the brightest buttercup, the red circle round the eye. They might get a bad press (I have a neighbour who’d happily shoot them 😦 ) but you have captured this one beautifully, Deborah 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Phil!

      Rats with wings is how I’ve heard them described more than once. I wouldn’t want a flock of them hanging about my house/yard, but when I spied this one I had to get a photo b/c I’d never seen one like it before, and it was huge compared to the Doves, and everyday Pigeons we normally see here. This one made my “life list”.

A penny for your thoughts...
