Tiny legs

Not the best photo, but I like how it shows that Woodpigeons have really tiny legs, not really ideal for walking, but for keeping their balance when they feed in trees. In fact, when Woodpigeons are in a hurry on the ground, such as chasing a partner during courtship or approaching an opponent in a fight, they often hop a few times instead of running.
