A Surprisingly Pretty Pigeon

I will admit that I normally just pass by the pigeons in the city centre, but this one’s markings caught my eye, so I had to stop and take a couple of photos.

According to the RSPB, feral pigeons are the descendants of the Rock Dove, and can be almost any shade ranging from white with chequered markings, to more of a blue black colouring.

It’s made me wonder if there are more unusual coloured pigeons in the city centre now – I might just have to stop and look again, and see if I can spot any others!
