MT and I did another neighborhood circuit a couple of days ago, this time going across the road to the ‘posh’ side of our neighborhood (and it’s seriously posh, with houses big enough to fit ours in their mudroom. I brought the wrong camera with me, so I didn’t get any examples. But we did come across a bird I haven’t seen in our area before. The crested pigeon is a common bird, and I’ve seen it on the other side of town, but never near us. I always smile when I see them, because they look a bit alternative, with the head-gear, their prismatic colouring, and their perpetually startled expressions.
