Crested Pigeon and early morning grooming, Mildura

Crested Pigeon, Mildura

Just before we left the caravan park in Mildura earlier this year, I saw this Crested Pigeon sitting on a power line attending to its early morning grooming. It totally ignored me snapping away below it. After a frosty night it was probably enjoying the first rays of sunshine. So was I.

Finally it consented to pose properly for me (see photos below).

    I think crested pigeons are a greatly undervalued bird. I like hearing them flapping about, and the colours on their wings are just lovely.

    I agree Louise. A wonderful bird and one we are so pleased to have as a breeding species in our garden. They are frequent visitors to our bird baths where we can get great views of their colours.
