Let’s start 2014 with a few beautiful birds: Pigeons of the Orient.
Not many words for once but images of a family of birds often dismissed as dull, mostly because its most common member: the rock pigeon is deemed as too common to be interesting and not attractive.
Doves and Pigeons, of the Columbidae family, have beautiful members which deserve admiration. Enjoy!
