Rock Pigeons, June 12, 2019

Wild Bird Wednesday and My Corner of the world

Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, May 30, 2019
Rock Pigeons (aka Rock Doves), Columba livia, are common in many parts of the world. There are many color variations, but most of them are grey with iridescent throat feathers and two dark wing bands. However, some individuals may be white or very dark. Natives of Europe, they were brought to North America in the 1600s.

They are equally at home in the countryside or in the city. They eat seeds and fruit, as well as bread scraps and other food discarded by people.

Have a wonderful day!

  1. ...they are pretty, but can be a mess in the city.

  2. Hello, I think they are cute, their colors are pretty. Wishing you a happy day!

  3. I saw a quite orange one today in a flock of grey ones!

  4. I think they are so pretty...

  5. I didn't know that they were introduced to the US. I guess they are introduced here in NZ, too. Nice photos, they always looks so calm and never in a hurry!

    Thanks for joining 'My Corner of the World' this week!
