White-crowned Pigeon

White-crowned PigeonHere’s another lifer bird.  This is a White-crowned Pigeon (Columba leucocephala).  They are common in the Bahamas, Cuba, Florida Keys and even found in the southern Florida tip.  This particular image was taken in Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas at a little nature park called Ardastra Gardens.  The bird was not captive.  As is the case with a lot of cruise onshore excursions, all we had was one hour to walk through the gardens.  While this was sufficient to at least walk by all of the exhibits, there wasn’t much time for lingering.  Even in that one hour, I did manage three life birds that were not captive.  So I guess it was an OK stop.
