Wood Pigeon

A blue-grey plump bird with pinkish hue on the breast. Has a distinctive white patch on the side of the neck, and a prominent white bar on the wing. They noisily slap their wings together when flying off.

The song of the Wood Pigeon can be distinguished from the Collared Dove by having five notes "oo-OO-oo oo-oo" rather than the three of the Dove. Nests are built in trees and on ledges of buildings and consist only of twigs.

Wood Pigeons will visit bird tables and on the ground around to take seed. They also eat tender shoots in the wild.
