We have quite a few Woodpigeon around at the moment. The Common Wood Pigeon (Columba palumbus) is a large species in the dove and pigeon family. It belongs to the Columba genus and, like all pigeons and doves, belongs to the family Columbidae. The Wood Pigeon is generally grey with a pinkish breast and green, white and purple patch on the neck. The tail has a black tip and the wings have a prominent white patch. The eye is a bright yellow. The legs and bill are pink. DID YOU KNOW : Life expectancy of the Woodpigeon varies greatly from 3-5 years through to 15 years dependent on many factors, including natural predation and human interference. Predation: The wild pigeon is predated upon, almost exclusively, by the peregrine falcon. The woodpigeons feathers weigh more than its skeleton. An interesting feature about how woodpigeons drink is that they use their beak like a straw, whereas other birds scoop the water up and throw their heads back to let it flow down their throats. #rspb_love_nature #animalsofinstagram #animal_captures #animals_in_world #splendid_animals #animalscaptures #animal_fanatics #animalelite   #animal_sultans #wildlifephotography #birdphotography   #wildlifephoto   #wildlifelovers #birding #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #birdsofinstagram #photooftheday #RSPB #canon #snappyBeaks #nature #happybeaks #gardenbirds
