In February 2021, I published my photos of a pigeon struggling eat while standing on a small limb of an overgrown weed. While walking in Brooklyn Bridge Park on December 12, 2022, I came across a pretty multi-colored pigeon trying to eat berries from a small tree or bush. I say trying because the small limbs of the tree were not quite sturdy enough to support the weight of the fair bird. Because the pigeon was fighting a lengthy, somewhat successful battle, I had plenty of time to photograph wildlife in action in Brooklyn, New York. Unfortunately, most of my photos did not come out well, even with the benefit of ex post de facto upscaling, but the scene was interesting enough to publish some of the photographs despite their lack of quality.
First, I took a few photos without zooming in.
I zoomed in a bit for the rest of the photos. All of the photos are published in the order I took them.
After taking my last photo (seen above), I left the pigeon to continue its acrobatic breakfast. The pigeon was still eating when I last saw it. As I walked away, I noted a few sturdier looking plants growing berries that may have been more amenable to a bird of the size of our pigeon friend. But for whatever reason, the pigeon seemed set on these particular berries.
