Wood pigeon doing a Richard Wilson impersonation? ;-)
Strange to think that from centuries ago until around the 1930s, country folk made pies out of these birds. For the not-so-well-off, pigeon pie was a well-used menu in rural areas….guess this also helped preserve peoples home-grown vegetables from being eaten by pigeons….
