Birds in Central Kathmandu
Wherever I walked in Kathmandu there were temples and special religious monuments everywhere. In many cases these are very colourful and so become focussed on by photographers like myself. Other structures are significant for other reasons.
This building is part of the Buddhist Stupa complex in central Kathmandu. The reason I took this photo was for the birds on the roof of the building. In this open public area near the temple there were literally thousands of Rock Doves (also called Feral Pigeons). They seemed to be everywhere in great numbers. It was therefore inevitable that one of them wanted to buy my hat – it left a deposit on it.
And so my hat needed a wash when I arrived back in the hotel.
