[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
…such as I have promised H. Ayhan!

This photo was taken at Sítio, Nazaré on the same day that I took my yesterday's posted photo. I saw that flock of pigeons and decided to dedicate this photo to H.Ayan (norenastramus) for I have noticed that he loves pigeons.

The large bird genus Columba comprises a group of medium to large stout-bodied pigeons, often referred to as the typical pigeons.

As with other genera in the family, the terms dove and pigeon are used interchangeably, although smaller species are more likely to be called doves. The species commonly referred to just as the "pigeon" is the feral Rock Pigeon.

Most species in this genus are found in the Old World, but there are a few representatives in the Americas, and some species, notably the Feral Pigeon, have been introduced outside their natural range.

The American species of Columba should be split off as a separate genus, Patagioenas, as it was done by the American Ornithological Union. That the American radiation constitutes a distinct lineage is borne out by molecular evidence (e.g. Johnson et al., 2001)

Hi Lurdes!

They must be praying for food or something! Nice capture of a devout piteousness (term used for a group of doves & since pigeons & doves are often mistaken for each other, I chose this word for its religious connotation) of pigeons.
Thanks for sharing,

Olá Lurdes,
Gostei da edição... a paralela entre o telhado e a moldura está perfeita.
A "paralela" entre o título e a frase da fotografia é que ficaram um pouco distantes.
Terá sido da orientação do vento?
Bom registo
