You were cleaning your gutters at just the right time. How excited you must have been to discover the nest complete with mother, chick and egg! You took full advantage of a rare opportunity. A marvelous capture of the nest and its occupants with excellent details and beautiful colors. I love the expressions on both faces. Congratulations on this once in a lifetime shot.

Oh beautiful, three generations of pigeon, lol
Jokes aside, what a lovely sharp, detailed family group.

I grew up with them around but had never seen a nest before. Also did not know that they are not rock pigeons anymore. Wonderful composition - one hatched and one still in the shell with the concerned mother. I enjoy it when there is action or activity. Well done as usual.

This is a great close up of this pigeon and her little chick.A classical scene not often seen,see cleaning gutters does have some good points.Well captured.
