sat in my car yesterday watching about 70 pigeons feeding on field of rape, every now and then a bird would lie on the ground and lift one wing vertically in the air looking like sail there was light rain at the time and I wondered if that had any bearing on this odd behaviour,at any one time there would be about a dozen birds doing this, can anyone shed light on this as I have not seen this in over 65 years shooting pigeons.

seen black birds do it as well...and when they do it they gape at the same time...
