Pier pigeons

Pigeons on the pier deciding what to think about me.

I am at an acceptable physical distance, yet powered by a zoom lens to spy closer.

I admire this bird’s pretty iridescence.

I gave the pigeons a drink by turning on a faucet to drip some water onto the deck. The pier is at Indian Riverside Park.

Most birds drink by taking a mouthful of water then tipping their heads back to swallow. But pigeons use their beaks like straws to suck up a good long drink.
