I came upon this little pigeon gathering on a rooftop in Gombereto, one of the villages of Bagni di Lucca. They were enjoying a bit of spring sun, chatting and preening and doing what pigeons do.
I was impressed with the variety of pigeons in one spot. I know not everyone likes pigeons because they poo on things, but I find them fascinating, and some of their relatives earned Dickin Medals, the animal version of the Victoria Cross. 32 pigeons were awarded medals between 1943 and 1949.
