Vivacious Woodpigeons

I find that some garden birds are oft gregarious,
… and others are socially mysterious,
Which can offer up the crumbs of the hilarious,
Or make perch time precarious,

Like woodpigeons,

Hardly graceful as they stroll along,
.. tripping over their own feet,
Not partaking in any particular song,
But always joyful to all whom they meet.

They remind me of grey Garfield’s with wings,
… but l do so like them, for their ambling gait,
And the smile to my face that they bring,
When they stop by in the garden for a seed date.

  1. Lovely way to end the day, too! Thank you, Rory.
    I feel your wonderful poem is an apt description and the photo illustrates such character, as he goes strutting along. 😊
    I love birds so, but there is something even more special about doves and pigeons.

    1. Yes there is Betty and l think it is because sometimes l find that some birds are not awarded the attention they should receive.

      Many birdwatrchers pay more attention photography wise to smaller more colourful birds and l like them too, but doves and woodies and other large species have at times just as much character if not more.

      1. Another thing I’ve noticed is that the less colorful and even quite dully plumaged birds have the loveliest songs. And, in fact, some of the most beautiful birds have repelling (to me, anyway) calls – for instance the peacock.

  2. When I was a wee lass my feet tended to point inward, “pigeon toed” is my mother called it. Her idea of corrective measures was to make me wear my shoes on the wrong feet and to yell at me🤷🏼‍♀️ my feet no longer point inward, but I still trip over them😂😂

    I had avian visitors for breakfast this morning. Parrots stopped by for some unripe Pecans. Beautiful & Zen way to start a day!!

  3. My grandfather raised pigeons as a hobby… I always had my own pigeon … we would raise them and race them ❤️

    It was REALLY cool!!

    And when you feed them you rang a bell and was like Alfred Hitchcock lol 😮

    But I loved my pigeon ❤️ they would let you hold them and were very tame ❤️ we cared for them very well

      1. Hahaha cause yeah we would shake their food like that… if they tamed? Maybe someone near you raises them?

        Some pigeons would get lost on races – you would always lose a few

        My mom did not like the pigeons lol … she called them flying rats 🐀 lol 🤷‍♀️

        They really cool though.

      2. Tame not yet, but l think once we have less of a busier garden here, l can improve their skittishness. Currently they fly down and allow me to be quite close, but if l move then you have a flock of twenty take to the skies – very noisy then 🙂
