Spinifex Pigeon

Spinifex Pigeon
CommentSuch a handsome bird - and very cooperative too, enabling quite a close shot. There were a few people moving around the river bed quite close to the bird as well but it was not too concerned and showed no sign of taking to the wing - it would just move on foot if anyone got more than 4 or 5 metres from it. There were a group of these pigeons nearby on the river bank including some young birds but they were much more cautious.
