Bonjour Tom,
Nice capture of this bird I didn't know. The ray of sun on the plumage is welcome, and I guess you enhanced it with a slight work on the contrast. The result is very pleasant to see, and the contrast with the quite dull BG is interesting.
Tfs, Philippe.

Hello Tom
I would say this is a lovely pigeon. Never seen the pattern of the feather like this.
Excellent sharpness and clarity. The well groom feathers on the nest is splendid. The red patches is amazing.
Excellent capture from below.
