I have a soft spot for Australia since I spent the first 7 years of my life there. I don’t remember ever really noticing the pigeons there (pigeons came into my consciousness after we had moved to Finland – I loved watching them bobbing up and down the street), and I cannot say that I would have realised (at that age) that the Australian species are indeed pigeons – they are so different looking. Here are a few examples:

Amazingly beautiful!! More Australian pigeons can be found at:

I’m not one for bird watching in the true hobby sense – I’m just an occassional observer – but I think I would be up for a round-the-world trip of pigeon watching! There are just so many beautiful pigeon species in the world – just have a look through this website: Pigeons and Doves of the World. Sadly, many are threatened with extinction – and tragically many are already extinct. (More on extinction later.)
