[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Pigeons have oil gland above their tail. They make their feathers oily by applying that oil from gland. Oiling of the feathers prevent water penetration for pigeons in some level also. In the same time by trapping air between the feathers, working as insulation, allows the bird to loose its body heat in a slower pace during the cold days.
I shot this pigeon while its applying that oil in its feathers.
