Isn't he a pretty bird?
Elephant's Child was right on the money with her identification of him as a Common Bronzewing Pigeon. I was lucky to see the brilliant flash on the wings as the sun was just at the right angle. I wouldn't have been close enough to photograph him as they fly off very quickly if disturbed not like the other freeloaders around here. I hope he comes back as I've never seen one like this before under the buffet tree in my backyard.
