The Living Forest (173) : Wood Pigeons

Due to the relatively warm january weather, this couple Wood Pigeons is having already a lot of sense to make a love nest.......

The Wood Pigeon is the largest pigeon in Europe and lives mostly in the forest.
In winter however, this bird is often leaving the forest in search of food.

Did you know that the feathers of this species weigh more than its skeleton ?

Dutch name : Houtduif
German name : Ringeltaube
Latin name : Columba palumbus
