Bird of the Week: 26th November - Pigeons and Doves

I don't think we have covered this group of birds before! I was inspired after Russianbear's lovely Crested Pigeon shot.

Adding a few from my recent collections. I am sure there will be a lot more to come:

Brown Cuckoo Dove, Spotted Dove & Topknot Pigeon

The usual suspects:  Crested Bronzewing, Common Bronzewing (male), Common Bronzewing (female - pretending to be invisible as she blended into the grey background of the boardwalk as we predators walked by) and a not very jovial Laughing Turtle Dove.

Cool, some great shots there. Got some good closeups today but trying to learn how to use Lightroom now (after doing a 2 day photography course over the weekend). Will post later once I've successfully worked it out.

Well, managed to get one processed and am happy with the shot.  I think I'm going to like Lightroom, once I get used to it.

I've not seen any of these, except the first ones pacman. I think, from memory, you're in a different state to me, so that maybe why?

Hi,

I have found a very sick Bar Shoulder Dove who is covered in some sort of bug/insect maybe lice. Can someone tell me what these bugs are. What should I do with the dove

Can you post a close up photo, jude, so that the bugs can be identified?

Other than taking the dove to a vet you could contact your nearest wildlife rescue organisation.

By the way, your post is better suited to the Bird rescue/rehabilitation sub-forum. Just for your future reference.
