Great. Like how the grey pigeon accentuated by the pinkish background.
One of mine below. Taken with the 55-250 EFs from not more than 1.5 meters. Really great lens for its price.

We've got pigeons that visit the feeders in our back yard as well. This juvenile one tried to fly through our window several times before I got my camera out to take his portrait.

Hi Guys, find some photos from my backyard. There are plenty of Spotted Doves visit our backyard along with Noisy Miners every day.

Thanks.

Canon 5d Mark III and the70-200mm L F2.8 II IS USM.  I had to get pretty danged close, and even so, these are cropped a lot.

I have some shots with my 2x III teleconverter also.  That made it harder to focus on the birds who won't sit still, but I did get some decent shots.  I'll try to find some to post.

Good, sharp pictures with nice depth of field.  My critique would be not to be afraid to zoom out a little to sacrifice a little detail and show a little more of the bird.  It's a little awkward when part of the bird is cut off.
