White-headed Pigeon

White-headed Pigeon (Image ID 36904)
CommentWhite-headed Pigeons are common in NE NSW, due to the abundance of Camphor Laurel trees. However, they tend to be elusive, and not easy to photograph. So I was pleased when this pair flew up a nearby tree after visiting my birdbath. The female is described as duller and greyer than the male, and is therefore the bird on the left. I like the texture of the feathers on the female's back, and the white breast of the male, and was pleased to obtain this image of the pair of birds to submit to the competition.
