[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Wood Pigeon (Columba palumbus) is a member of the family Columbidae, doves and pigeons.

In the colder northern and eastern parts of its European and western Asiatic range the Wood Pigeon is a migrant, but in southern and western Europe it is a well distributed and often abundant resident.
The three Western European Columba pigeons, Wood Pigeon, Stock Pigeon, and Rock Pigeon, though superficially alike, have very distinctive characteristics; the Wood Pigeon may be identified at once by its larger size at 3843 cm, and the white on its neck and wing. It is otherwise a basically grey bird, with a pinkish breast.
