Straight from camera ! …….

Cute puffed up wood pigeon taken at Hinchingbrooke, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, England, UK

Wood pigeons are large and portly grey birds, with a white band across the wings, white patch at the side of the neck and a dark band on the tail. They have a pinkish brown neck and upper breast.

Wood pigeons inhabit a variety of habitats, particularly wooded country, farmland, parks and gardens

Their call sounds like coo-coo-coo, coo-coo

Spring blossom on trees ……..

Work has been featured in the Blooming Trees group, Aug 20, 2010.

    Lovely shot through the blossom! I guess if he’s trying to keep warm, it must have been a chilly day!

    We need more photos like this exquisite one; so people realize these wild pigeons deserve to stay around! very well done capture and timing. Frankly I do not know the ecology of this species and I have to look deeper myself! Well done
