Woodpigeons... the big daft birds in the garden.................. aka "the Hoovers"

I call the Woodpigeons "my garden Hoovers"...as they gobble up anything dropped from the feeders.

Strutting up and down in their comical way... always after a snack.

I see many pigeons sat in the trees that line the road to my house...

...but only ever seem to get two in the garden... and they are usually squabbling.

They try to imitate the little birds and use my feeders... it's not a good look.

..."use the birdbath you big dope!"....

Resting on the fence admiring the view... not a chance of this bird ever using the hole.
They always make me smile watching their antics.

The clarity and colors in your photos lately are top-notch Andrew.

It's a common bird for you, of course, but I always delight in seeing them when I visit the UK.

I find them to be very pretty...not like the pigeons of NYC. I love your naming them your garden Hoovers.

Great shots of the pigeon. I like the strutting one.

These two have probably laid claim to your garden and told other pigeons to keep away.
Love the photos!
