    Birds

    I liked the 'Ducks' that were Canadian Geese.
    With all the other threads going I thought I'd do a UK Pigeon
    Shame about the reduction in resolution - orig was 5mp which
    revealed loads of plumage details and colours (A-200)

    A rare sighting indeed. Aren't UK pigeons a protected species? Thought I saw a bulletin in the Audubon Society Magazine...

    ...What's in a name?

    Even shrunk for posting it's still a great shot.

    Very nice indeed. In New York, we call them rats with wings...

    Ah, but this is a UK pigeon. Notice the beak.

    Duck

    Hey thanks for the kind comments guys - it's only a Pigeon at the end of the day ~ nice of him to stop there for a moment.
    So next I have a Duck for you - this IS a Duck, not a Goose!!
    Anyone got any idea what sort of Duck because I haven't.

    Yup. That was interesting, as your pigeon looks more like a dove (I think they are in the same family). But I'm no Ornithologist (heck I can barely spell it).

    I dunno. Looks kind-of like Donald Trump though (nice feather-over). Maybe it is one of these guys. I think your duck has a different doo, but close.

    Geoff-

    Thanks for the nice A-200 photos. They look great. I especially like the duck.

    Uh... Kornhauser...as interesting as that might be, and sort-of, on-topic, I think it is against the posting rules and guidelines.

    You must be on my wife's side of the family. It's meant to be funny. Maybe in poor taste, but funny.

    It's a shock value picture...
