Rock Dove On A Rock

Christopher Reiger
"Pigeon (Rock dove); Mountain Lake; Presidio, San Francisco, CA; August 2013"
Because so many people think of pigeons as "sky rats," I like to emphasis their more "proper" common name, rock dove (Columba livia). They're fascinating birds and, although ubiquitous in urban landscapes, shouldn't be viewed with such disgust.
