Hello Nick another interesting bird shot to your gallery this looks to me like a "Feral Pigeon" not quite the usual colour that is more like a Rock dove but these come in many colours due to the colour of the breeding stock line which are usually escaped and wild domestic pigeons :))
a "like" from me
best wishes .. steve
Steve Drury Thanks as usual for helping me out Steve and many more thanks for the like ~ all the best ~ nick
Whatever type of pigeon this is, he certainly seems to be focused on a mission of sorts!
* Like 4 *
Friendly greetings, Judy
Lady Harley ~~~ and it was hoping to grow up to be a Swan!!! ~ in the meantime the mission is food and how to get the rest of the feathers white :))))
Thanks for the like Judy ~ All the best ~ nick
"Mr. Weall, you and your camera just go away, Iam heading over here on some important business" unquote! :))) Nick love this little fella, hope he finds out if he is to become a "Swan: :))
Like... warm wishes~~ and hugs..~Sarah~
Sarah O Pigeons might have aspirations of becoming a swan and thus protected by the Queen, but are probably quite happy to be what they are ~ Hugs ~ nick
Isn't that a fine moment when the fog starts to vanish and everything seems so bright and clear again! Seems like a determined dove.
sixten_imgs The fog is lifting extremely slowly it seems ~ now we just need the snow to melt too :)))
I suppose we'll have to wait for that a couple of days more. This winter's record early this morning: minus 38,2 C... The lucky place Taivalkoski lies a decent distance to north from here, and that is a very nice fact right now.
sixten_imgs Hm that sounds distinctively chilly ~ not a place to put anything outside :(
I have been in Luleå, Sweden during December that was cold enough for me. I see that is not so far away from Taivalkoski really. I seem to remember minus 30 or so.
We have sun here now, but still very cold by English standards
I don't think it's a racing pigeon ( although it looks like it can walk fast!). It looks very healthy for a feral pigeon.
