Wood Pigeon

Recently we had more wood pigeons (hemiphaga novaeseelandiae) around the house than ever before. I was just going to have breakfast on the deck when this one flew into a nearby kanuka tree, staying long enough to let me get my camera, and obligingly moving its head forward into the sunlight.


  1. Birds are rarely as obliging for me.

  2. Great!
    I still haven had the chance of a good shot at a Wood Pigeon but I’ll persist!
