Pigeon post

This afternoon I was trying to get some photos of Siskins for a garden ringing update but was somewhat distracted by a Wood Pigeon that was going through its ablutions. I couldn't resist taking a series of photos including the time it spent titivating itself up afterwards (aka preening) and thought it deserved a post of its own. The whole process took a good 20 minutes so the question is what sex is it - a male with plenty of time to spare or a female in a rush :)

It started with a leisurely soak in the bath and was followed by a good wash, then there was some sunning and preening on the lawn followed by more sunning and preening on a timber garden feature.

Garden (Siskin) ringing update to follow.
