Juvenile Woodpigeon

Woodpigeon, juvenile


Sunday 17th July 2011

My Sunday morning pruning was interupted when a recently fledged Woodpigeon appeared amongst the branches I was trimming. As I've said before Woodpigeons would be better described as Garden pigeons as they become ever more common in the Urban environment. However, I cant remember seeing a juvenile before. The reason might be that they dont appear to feed on the ground at this stage and spend hours just perched in the same spot in trees.
