A Brown Coloured Pigeon


Want to stand out in a crowd? Well, it was pretty easy for this brown coloured Pigeon to do so. I was immed -iately fascinated when I saw it at Lily Lake in Saint John last week, and I knew I just had to take its picture. I don't often take pictures of pigeons but this one was especially attractive.

Pigeons, more formally called, Rock Doves, are usually seen in varying shades of gray, as is the case of the other pigeons in the group photo above. I found this brown one to be very outstanding and handsome in its appearance.

Goodness! The color is certainly startling and different....but pretty! I love the "strutting" picture second from the bottom..it looks like a soldier on parade :-)
