I can't help myself! Wood pigeons were a favourite of my father's and they are a favourite of mine also. There was a flock (the group name for pigeons is flight or flock) of them perched in our plum trees scoffing the young leaves for all they were worth late this afternoon.
They were so engrossed with feeding their faces, they hardly noticed me as I sidled up with the camera.
You'll note an additional page on the tab under "West Bank Witterings" - Fiji Birds. That means that this old bloke has figured out how to add a page to a blog. Didn't I do well! So now I have painted myself into a corner. Do I post photos of the pigeons I saw today on this page, or do I post them on a page especially for NZ birds?
The answer is, of course, that I'll post them here for now, and perhaps add them to a NZ bird page later, 'cos I can't wait!
