Doc Barbara Gets the Bird

   Although Doc Barbara wishes to harmonise with all living creatures, with a special preference for the lower invertebrates, she has not yet managed to love the call of the wood pigeon, finding it, if she were to be totally honest within herself, monotonous and unimaginative. 

   A believer in making small adjustments wherever her talents seem relevant, she has decided to re-educate this creature and teach it to vary its song with a theme at the start, a different melody in the middle and a return to the original adorned with flourishes at the end, in the general format of a Handelian da capo aria. Here, we are delighted to report, is a photograph of the bird emerging for its first lesson, head to one side and clearly keen to commence.
