Pigeon Wings by rubys polaroid

Natural Monday: Pigeon

It’s not everyday you get up close and personal with a pigeon, and also some time for portraits and side shots..lol but i did and i was so lucky that day. This is a local bird specie and even through it’s a pigeon its real name is The Laughing Dove Pigeon (I’ve never seen one smile much less laugh so the name has never made sense to me), maybe it was a joke amongst the Ornithologists.Β (- its a branch of zoology that concerns the study of birds)

  1. beautiful images – but what an odd name. you made me google, and wikipedia seems to think this bird chuckles – “The chuckling call is a low rolling croo-doo-doo-doo-doo with a rising and falling amplitude.”
     
    is that how it sounds to you?
