Relaxed Woodpidgeon by little--grasshopper Relaxed Woodpidgeon by little--grasshopper
This is my woodpidgeon while he is very relaxed and happy. I know it is best to avoid taking birds from the wild unless in immediate danger, but he was given to us by someone else (well, we came home and found him on our doorstep, sitting in a washing up bowl), so we had to take him in and raise him. He was then about two weeks old, and he is growing well! :D We hope to let him free later, however we will still provide food and shelter for him if he wants it.

Entry for :iconbirds-club:'s competition, 'Emotions'.

Sony DSLR-A200

Your welcome, that must be sad after getting use to him you have to let him go. I myself couldnt do that but I know its the right thing to do.
