Browne's Beach, Barbados

I am going to tell without any hesitation that this pristine scene of two Barbados Wild Pigeons would have been fair game in my childhood. For sure, one of these lovely birds would have been in the sites of my gutterperk (slingshot). The head would have been the main target, since these birds are tough. Usually you would see them high up in the palm or casuarinas trees. But since they have no predators, they are like the doves, plentiful.

The kids in today’s Barbados do not understand the pleasure of hunting birds. They are more in tune with watching TV, playing video games, misbehaving, or some other vice. They cannot even see the beauty around them.

Oh, boy, one last shot…this time it is the camera.
