The Jiggy Woodpigeon

I remember this particular Woodpigeon was trying to figure out a way of getting food from the hanging feeders. They can be clever birds when they want to be, and sometimes they figure out a way as can be seen in the image below, but other times they just can’t seem to make up their mind. I did use a little bit of artistic licence with the video, just for fun πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment πŸ™‚ I was surprised when I saw the acrobatic pigeon in the bottom image. After a few slips, he soon got the knack of it πŸ™‚

  2. How did I miss all THIS?!? Music and movies! I must have been on the dark side of the moon or stuffed in a car trunk not to have realized this. You are quite simply amazing. (And what a photographer β€” that upsidedown pigeon made me laugh out loud.) πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you very much Peggy πŸ™‚ I couldn’t believe the upside down pigeon when I first saw him, and just had to try and get a photo. He fell off a few times before practice got him there! πŸ™‚

      1. Ha. Would love to have watched that upside down pigeon try to hang on. I did not know a pigeon would even attempt that position.

  4. Lovely fun video Pete, and the music fits so well with the bobbing pigeon! Great capture of his acrobats on the bird feeder too. I do just love the sound of the wood pigeons; we had two close to the bird table today and I’m hoping they’ll maybe nest nearby.

    1. Thank you, Jude. I am pleased you like the video πŸ™‚ I like their call also, and the sound of the Collared Dove. The dove will sometimes sit on our chimney on summer evenings and do his cooing for quite a spell. I saw a couple of woodpigeons in a tree outside my window a few days ago, and I believe they have been buidling a nest, but I also saw a crow there poking around, and I just hope it wasn’t after any eggs.
