I Don’t Know This Bird

Two hours before Germany would play against Mexico, I didn’t know what to do with my time. I decided to go outside, walking around with my camera. I shot a couple of bird photos, but one photo was difficult because there were branches in front of the bird. I shot the photo anyway, and I had difficulties to tell what type of bird it would be. I thought I could see it better at home on my PC screen, but I was wrong. Yes, I can see the image now in large, but I am still not sure what type of bird it is.

Due to the grey feathers, the body almost made me think that it is a dove, but I am confused about the head. Because this is not how a pigeon head looks like. Also it didn’t make pigeon sounds. I am confused. Also I am not sure if the bird is ok, maybe it’s taking a sun bath, or the bird is not healthy but exhausted. I have no idea. Here is the photo…

        1. I couldn’t tell either. In fact, with the small viewfinder I didn’t notice it at all outside. I was confused when I saw the picture on the PC screen… that’s when I saw the white areas in and around the face.

          The beak reminds me indeed of a common blackbird. So, it could be albinism or lost feathers. Whatever it is, this bird gives us a hard time knowing 🙂
