World Bird Wednesday - Crested Pigeon.

The Crested Pigeon is neither iconic nor clothed in bright plumage - but I like to see them anyway - and who could resist the crest!


These birds have become more common in Melbourne during the drought - now that it seems to have started raining again I wonder if they will move back inland.















You can find many more images of birds from around the world at World Bird Wednesday.

You can look at the most recent of my posts on my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention link on the RHS of the screen.

Enjoy the birds!

My concept of what is possible in bird design expands every time I tune into your blog.
Mr. Stewart, you are a great treasure!

Awesome shots of a really cool bird Stewart! I would never have imagined a pigeon with a crest. I love the plumage too.
