This is Chuck the leader of the packInspite of all the negative press pigeons receive there is so much more to them than the pooping 'flying rodent' persona they have adopted. Through the images I have captured of three pigeons I was able to spend some time with last week, I hope to give a new perspective and shed light on the other face of pigeons.
This is Barry D. Barry D is Chuck's No. 2
Chuck (the leader of the pack) informed me that pigeons for generations have been shocked and indeed wounded by the way humans are so selective in their attitude towards pigeons, especially as their first cousins the dove are so widely accepted and embraced with genuine affection and care.
'There is no strict division between pigeons and doves. They share many features, including small rounded heads, small, slim bills with a small fleshy patch a the base, rounded bodies with dense, soft feathers, tapered wings and short, scaly legs, and cooing or crooning calls'. The cry of the pigion population is for equality and 'Bird Rights' to be extended to them and that this campaign of discrimination against them should end now!
