"Bird on the wire"

Not the Leonard Cohen song, but one of the Crested Pigeons that are widespread around our distict. often they are seen at the front of our property, sitting on the wires or wandering around the road edge looking for seeds carried along by the cars. They have a very distinctive whisling sound from their wings as they burst into flight to gain height which is generally followed by a glide on flat wings.
