pigeon-balancing- 2 - pigeons, 鳩, pidgeon, Co...



Taken 20040326. In the garden in Kingston-upon-Thames, London, England. We have some feral pigeons visit now as well, but we have removed the fat balls until the winter, so I do not know if they will learn the same balancing trick as this woodpigeon!
