Collared Dove (juvenile)

Today is the third anniversary of the move into our home. To celebrate we went for a walk in the late morning. I took loads of pictures but none were exciting. As usual the red kites were taunting me, one appeared very low (being mobbed by a crow) but I couldn't get a decent shot of it.

Both Percy and Pierre were in the garden when we got home and I got some more pictures of peacocks pressed up against the glass of the windows looking in. For a change I decided not to go with a peacock picture today.

Today's blip is a young Collared Dove (Streptopelia decaocto) that was sitting on a wall. I don't think it has full flight feathers as it didn't try to fly away when I got close enough to take this picture. If you believe Wikipedia they show little fear of humans so it's not that unusual to get close. The feathers look best large.
