Default [pic] Crested Pigeons resting

Went for a drive on a Saturday morning in June as the sun was shining (for once!) so I needed to make the most of the opportunity. I grabbed my gear, jumped in my car & headed out towards Warrandyte. On the way I passed through Wonga Park, where I found a flock of at least a dozen or more Crested Pigeons feeding in a paddock & preening & sunning themselves on a fence.

These pigeons are quite pretty with their striped wing feathers with iridescent tips. This photograph doesn’t show the iridescent colours that well, but you can see the blue & green colours on the wing tips.

Olympus E620
Zuiko 70-300mm lens

Unusual pigeons, we don't have any like that around here. The color of their eyes give them a stern expression when combined with the spikes on their head.
