Most Beautiful Pigeon?

Annie D sent an anonymous web mail of over- the- top- birds. One is of my favorite wild pigeon, the Nicobar (Caloenas nicobarica) of the east Indies. I'd be glad to credit it--?

Wow - beautiful! But how does it taste?

It IS eaten! (;-)

Well, in that case, I'd love to photograph its feathers. Gorgeous!

Reminds me of the joke about the guy that was caught poaching, then eating a Bald Eagle(those of you who have heard this old joke, please bear with me....) He pleaded guilty without the least sign of remorse, and accepted his heavy fine stoically. The Judge's curiousity was aroused, and he just had to ask the fellow, "I don't mean to seem callous, but I am curious; just what does Bald Eagle taste like?" "Well yer honor" said the defendant "It's kinda hard to describe. Something like between a Whooping Crane and a California Condor!!"....L.B.

At one time the punch line of that joke was "Tastes a little like Spotted Owl". Times change, tastes change.
