If I asked you to name an Australian bird what would be your answer? I doubt pigeon would be high on that list. If I asked you to name a bird you didn’t like, you might answer pigeon. If you asked me would I ever include a photograph of a pigeon in my yearly collection I’d probably say no.
As you can see this all changed when I saw this colourful bird. I didn’t know then it was a pigeon, all I knew was I fell in love with it’s colouring. Especially against the backdrop. Turns out it’s a bronzewing pigeon.
