Camera Critters # 106- Pigeons


The pigeons of Brixen, Italy came to lunch with me. They were a neat flock and very respectful. I shared some bread from my sandwich.
They came in a lot of color patterns.

They had really neat eyes and cool red feet.

They all had the regal walk.
I really like this brown and white one.

You can see a lot of critter at the above site.

I don't see so many different colors of pigeons around here. Great pictures, Tom!

Quite graceful! :)
I had a "familiar" feeling when looking at your header pic and when I read "Löwen Apotheke" it confirmed to me: it's Germany! I love that country!
God bless you!

So typical for the pigeons to be around, especially in Europe. Life without them definitely would be different. Thanks for sharing, these are very nice. Anna :)

Cool pictures, Tom. I love the brown and white one. Never seen that colour before . Thanks for sharing. PS I'm struggling to get the word varification. I hope my comment doesn't appear half a dozen times!

Pigeons are a beautiful bird and I've never seen so many colour combinations.

Fun to see these lovely Italian pigeons. You took some great shots of the various kinds.

There have always been pigeons at the farm I grew up at and still are today. They actually belong to my brother now, a few miles from the farm but Mom says they fly in every day to visit. I always loved the brown ones too or the snow white ones.
BlessYou and thanks for sharing

Beautiful pigeons, Tom---especially lucky one to live where you were !!!!! Wonder if their pigeons are as much trouble as some of ours are ????? We had tons of trouble with pigeons living in the steeple at one of my churches several years ago...

That is sure a lot of different colors Tom. Some look like mutations.

Those crazy little birds can sometimes be the coolest people, and at other times they can be a real pest... Guess it depends on our attitude. Nice shots Tom!

An excellent series, Tom

Oh this is so funny! I just got a pic of some pigeons yesterday, and today I put one up on my Facebook. I have a couple other birds that I'll post on the blog this week instead. It looks like you got real close. I used to see them a lot, growing up in Chicago, but the three pigeons hanging around with a flock of seagulls was a rare find around here.

Rose said...

I like the brown and white one, too, maybe cause I don't recall ever seeing one around here!

Twisted Fencepost said...

I like the brown ones too.
I love them because they will come so close to you and you can really watch them up close.

I know that some people consider them a nuisance, but I've always thought they were very pretty birds.
