Thirsty doves

In the the square of The Old Town (Palia Poli) on the island of Rhodes (Rhodos, Rodos) in Greece stands an old fountain and water post. Like all such structures around the world, it atttracts both tourists and birds - and they are all thirsty. I let the tourists take care of themselves and concentrated on a dove.

"Ah, that was good!!!"

"What - another one of those irritating tourists with a camera! Can't a decent bird have his drink for himself?"

"Oh, well - he will just have to find himself his own waterhole!"

Hmmm. I've watched birds eat berries in this position but I've never watched them drink water this way. Nice catch!

Hi Rune! Sorry for the delay in coming here, but these last weeks have been hectic; no, I’m not talking about the financial/economic crisis… ;))
These pigeons pics are amazing; great shots! The ducks and the skywatch pics are also excellent!
Congrats on the award from Petunia.
Loved to see your pictureof Lindos; a wonderful little village with a superb view from the top!

Interesting photos of the Dove, the other people there, probably never noticed the bird having a drink. Enjoyed your Greece pictures.
I have been to Turkey but not Greece.
