Common Wood Pigeon drinking

This week my Saturday Bird is the Common Wood Pigeon (Columba palumbus) or Wood Pigeon it was known as when I was growing up. Some references hyphenate Wood-pigeon and I’ve also seen it referenced as Woodpigeon. It’s primarily a European species although its range does extend into western Asia.

The bird is drinking at a small garden pond at Faddiley near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England. This angle shows the iridescent feathers around the neck and shoulders.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Action

When I read the prompt for the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Action I had all sorts of ideas for a post.

It took me some time to narrow down the ideas to either different species doing the same activity or to concentrate on one species.

In the end I decided to go with one species engaging in various activities. I picked the humble House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) because it’s one of my most published species and I have lots of photos of them engaged in various activities.
