There is a pigeon outside and I don't know what sort it is but I dowish it would learn the words properly.

It doesn't mess about with the full " Don't swear so Suzy" like a proper wood pigeon and might well not be a United supporter like all the other collared doves because it just makes a sort of mooing noise which is extremely annoying.

I’ve never heard of that description, but found a wonderful site You can listen to all sorts of doves.

No point if they don't know the words though.

Thank you for telling me about that site anyway though. Although I can tell the doves apart, if they do it right, and I can now identify the turtle doves over the back as well, I am not very good on bird song and always had to ask my late neighbour to identify them.

I hope all the pigeons round here go to bed early and sleep late. I don’t want to waste good sleeping time on trying to work out all their calls. :-D

We have a pigeon round here that seems to be warning us by continually repeating "conspiracy, conspiracy, conspiracy"..
