Due to Ron Huntley's kindness, I can now show you a bit of what I've written about. All photos linked to, or shown on, this page are by him. The pictures here show some of the brown series. I'm responsible for the descriptions. Remember, the pattern - barless, bar or check is inherited independently of the color and all pigeons are one of these patterns, whether we can see it or not.

Brown Bar Brown Bar - Note the extreme bleaching of the outer tips of the flights where they weren't covered by other feathers. This is common with browns.

Brown Grizzle Brown Grizzle. Brown pigment is the cause of the base color and as with all base pigments it may have other modifiers like grizzle added to it. This bird is also Spread.
