With the number of birds I've been posting about of late, perhaps I should rename the blog Snapshots of Birds?
After the plethora of colourful parrots that fly through the area, I'm posting this crested pigeon because, to be honest, until I saw this photo on the computer I hadn't realised just how colourful they are. Look at the wings and that pink blush on the chest; then there are those bright pink feet and eyes.
Here is one not quite so colourful, perhaps the sun wasn't hitting him in the right spot or it's a juvenile which I read are not quite so pretty. He/she and 3 friends were waiting their turn at the seed but the particularly colourful (and bossy) rainbow lorikeet refused to let them dine. The pigeon is quite timid even in a flock from what I've observed at this feed station.
