Feral Pigeons often look such dirty and dishevelled birds. Not this one though.
I suppose it helps that the Pigeon lives in Siena in Tuscany and has access to a fountain with crystal clear water. I’m standing in Piazza del Campo, Europe’s greatest medieval square, with my back to the stunning Duomo di Siena. In front of me is the Fonte Gaia, the Fountain of the World, which was built in 1419 as the end of a whole system of conduits bringing water to the centre of the ancient city. It’s probably breathtaking.
I only have eyes for the Pigeon though.
