In the evenings, as my husband and I sit outside enjoying an icy beverage, we watch the birds at our feeders. We have an amazing array of birds. We have a good chuckle as we watch the pigeons try to get good footing on the narrow ledges of the feeders. Enjoy these photos of the band tailed pigeon! If you click on the photos you will see greater detail of these birds!
Here is the band tailed pigeon.
These birds made their appearance here about two years ago. Their numbers keep growing! They are a large bird. Their distinctive features include the half moon shape on the neck.
Notice the band on the tail…
They constantly monitor their surroundings.
They share the bird feeder with the local black birds.
They do not fight with other when it comes to feeding, but they do a bit of pushing and shoving as this last photo shows!
Why do we not see baby pigeons? The reason is that the babies do not leave the nest until they are full grown!
Well, thanks for dropping by today! Have a wonderful Wednesday, and I hope that you return tomorrow! Be well… ^..^
