Who Likes Pigeons?

Pigeons aren't usually winning beauty pageants in most peoples' minds.  Strutting on a city street, they endear themselves to some people who make a hobby of carrying bread to scatter for them.  To others they are mess makers.

Now have a look at this beauty, with its striking green plumage, vivid red markings and a breathtaking soft blue eye.  Many people report a sighting of this bird like this: "I've just seen an amazing green parrot with a red bill!"

 

Well, its a pigeon.  A gorgeous, fruit-eating African Green Pigeon.
