white birds
I have always thought that stars turn into white birds in the morning light
& sleep with their heads under their wings
until the dusk begins to walk through the streets.

Wet Bronzewing


A rather wet, all ruffled bronzewing on my clothes line.
This bird is a large pigeon native to Australia.

When the birds puff out like that it always makes them look so much bigger. I'm thinking this guy is pretty big to start with. :)
Wonderful capture Gemma!

Great capture! He looks like he eats very well!

Just from the hints in this still pose, I imagine that the wing span for this guy/gal is quite beautiful? Lovely soft blue markings on the throat.
