Ficus virens at BBC and the TBPigeons

Postby angieng » Wed Oct 24, 2012 12:01 am

Hi all,
Ficus virens at the BBC raintree is figging and attracting TB pigeons, a favourite tree with my favourite pigeons!
Awesome!
Figs may last another day or two.
Cheers!

yes, the Thick-billed is definitely one of the prettier pigeons, check out that lovely maroon, and gorgeous eyerings... :wub:
here's a vid of a hungry male gorging on the figs : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7h6jBWtd ... e=youtu.be

and here's a female, without the maroon, but still gorgeous :smile:
