Wood Pigeon (Columba palumbus)

I photographed these two wood pigeons while they were feeding on seeds in my yard. We have many rock pigeons roosting on the roof of our building. The wood pigeon can be distinguished by its much larger size and the white patch on the neck.

The wood pigeon is the most common bird in the UK but I see the rock pigeon more in Belgrade. This is the tenth bird species I photographed in Belgrade. I am trying to reach the 60+ I photographed in Anaco, Venezuela. We’ll see.
