Photographer's Note

At Internet I found it very difficult to find some info of this pigeon other than as a dish in the most tasty settings
Finally I had this info (from Callie):

Wood Pigeon.
Columbia palumbus

Found over most of Europe. Columbia palumbus. Yellow ring round the eye, pink bill with white cere, dull red legs and that white patch on the side of the neck. Pinkish breast.

(Thank's Callie for the correction of specimen and charachterstica)

With the popularity of this pigeon as an important dinner ingredience it was maybe typical that it landed on the electricity cable right outside our window when we was dining I just had to make a short pause to grab the camera for this shot
