Pigeon and Dove Pictures



Hubby and I saw this pretty pigeon on one of our walks on the farm. The iridescent colours were beautiful

Beautiful pigeon!

The pigeon is very beautiful, but I am afraid I am not a great fan, because of the mess they make of my cars, logs and other property in the barns I rent!! I do like the Collared Doves, though!!

Beautiful feathered friends.

Some of those domestic and racing pigeons can be very attractive and it is a pity that as a whole, flocks of feral pigeons become a nuisance.Incidetally Collared Doves were very, very numerous in Lanzarote - a very successful species.

The colors of the pigeons in the first two pictures are really very beautiful! I have not been to this beautiful colors seen in pigeons. The bright pink I feel wonderful!
