Delightful pictures of green pigeon activity from my balcony.

Mr and Ms Gul waste a lot of my time these days. ๐Ÿ˜‰

When I saw this first, there was no time to get the camera andย  I thought a rare photo-opportunity was lost ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

But I needn’t have worried ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Mr Gul had only gone…

To come back with another twig…

Here Mr Gul is trying to take a short cut ๐Ÿ™„

Now isn’t it obvious that he can’t reach her from here?


Passing the twig to Ms Gul…

Ms Gul working with the twig. Mr Gul’s back has Gulmohar patterns!!

It seems the male and the female green pigeon share the duty of nest building – the male gathers nest materials and delivers it while the female sits on the nest and mends it. [link]

Mr and Ms Gul at work.

But they aren’t yet done ๐Ÿ™‚
Off to look for one more twig.

Found the perfect twig.

This one is amongst my favorite shots ๐Ÿ™‚

Twig handed over. Doesn’t it look like Mr Gul is smiling? ๐Ÿ˜€
Going back to look for another twig ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. I’m going gaga over these birds – thanks for putting up these pics IHM!.. It’s amazing how the male and female are equally colorful. That’s a little unusual..


  2. You are having such a delightful time and its gonn a continue for about a month i hope !!
    such clear and beautifully taken shots IHM.. love you for sharing them with your readers ๐Ÿ™‚

    what a post to start the day with.. thank you thank you.. :-))


  3. Such lovely photography IHM .. Such a delightful time you must be having observing them .. and thanks for sharing the pics with us .. I trust Mr and Mrs Gul are not objecting to this unashamed intrusion into their privacy ๐Ÿ˜›


  4. i guess you should increase the shutter speed a little if you are using a proper dslr. some of the pics are slightly blur and they come out awesome if you choose the right mode for animals, birds and kids for obvious reasons.


    • Thank You, I am going to try doing that. I use Nikon D60, with Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G (4.3x) Lens
      (Telephoto Zoom Lens)
      I have to focus manually and always use a tripod.
      Planning to switch to Nikon D7000 – any suggestions?


      • Nikon D7000 is a great camera how ever, i would suggest reviewing Canon EOS 5D. I would suggest you buy a 18 – 200 mm lens for those pics that would just do the talking. ( I know this lens is going to cost you a bomb $450 in the US ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

        I own a canon EOS 3ti – the american variant of canon 600D in India and use 18 -135 mm lens and shoot decent pics with these lens.


  5. What an amazing color – i Have never seen pigeons of this colour. I don’t think i’d get any work done if they lived near my window ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. Pah! I’m jealous of you sitting there by yourself ๐Ÿ˜› and enjoying clicking pics.

    This is total awwww material ๐Ÿ™‚
    Now how about some pics of the babies also? ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Hi…lovely photos. In the UK people generally don’t like pigeons and call them flying rats! I, on the other hand, rather like them so it’s nice to see different types to the English ones ๐Ÿ™‚
