From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Common Wood Pigeon (Columba palumbus) is a large species in the dove and pigeon family. It belongs to the Columba genus and, like all pigeons and doves, belongs to the family Columbidae. It is locally known in southeast England as the Culver. In the colder northern and eastern parts of its Europe and western Asia range the Common Wood Pigeon is a migrant, but in southern and western Europe it is a well distributed and often abundant resident.

Hello Jiri,
I have had a love for pigeons and doves since I was a young boy. This is a new bird for me, and it appears to be quite large and attractive. It actually reminds me somewhat of our Mourning Doves here in Ohio. A very pretty pigeon and captured nicely by your lens.

Ciao Jiri. Great POV excellent details against the soft BG.

Hello Jiri
very nice capture of this woodcock. The details are good and the eye is so sharp. The blue sky as its background makes it much more exciting.
Well seen in exciting composition.
