Crested pigeon and baby

Crested pigeon keeping an eye on me as I struggle to photograph them between the branches.

We were sitting in our back yard yesterday morning, enjoying the sun, and the quiet, and the sound of birds, particularly the crested pigeons gently wooing to each other. We had our backs to a may bush, and could hear occasional rustling in there and a soft woo that was answered by another bird who we could see wandering around feeding. Of course we were curious as to why a crested pigeon would be inside the may bush ….and after searching carefully saw that they have a baby!! Middle of winter and there it was, snuggled up to an adult and about half the size, and just as beautiful. Today we didn’t have to look far to find the same birds in a nearby shrub.
Crested pigeons are always in our garden and often nesting. I think this is the first time we’ve actually seen a baby.
