This is the largest 'dove' I've ever seen!

Hans spotted him high up in that tree. Awkwardly against the light, of course, so not the best image.

Fortunately I saw another one a few days later and got a better picture. You never forget the first, though, do you.

Laughing out loud Delia, I thought he was a raptor. He is a great looking bird regardless of what you call him. Great Capture sweetie-pie.
He's a Wompoo Whopper!, D.,
