A great capture, Delia. Some nice colours to show off this woodpigeon. Brilliant close up, well done.
 
Beautiful shot! And a lovely guest. Magpies have lately taken over my entire feeder area. It was one thing when they would scare all the wee birds off whenever they came to feed on the seeds that fell to the ground, but now they've learned how to perch on the feeder itself and they stay there until they empty it. I need to get a caged feeder to discourage them :S
