Only the beak looks like a pigeon.

Wonderful to see.

Pigeons are pests, but with one like this it is obviously another story...
Great 'portrait' of an incredible bird!

This is certainly the most beautiful pigeon I've ever seen! It's such a dramatic and wondrous shade of blue.

Oh wow JM, wonderful close up of this beautifully coloured bird. I have to admit if I didn't know it was a pigeon I would have thought it a type of peacock. Nice work indeed!

Dina said...

Hi JM. Thanks, but I don't think my bird in Jerusalem is one of these beautiful ones you show.
Mine was in a big open jungle type aviary where all the birds can fly/walk around, so there were no signs of ID. Or maybe I just didn't notice them, since I had my eye more on the grandchildren instead.
