Wild Bird Wednesday 50–Rock Dove

For Wild Bird Wednesday, I’m sharing a few of our Rock Doves, though we normally refer to them as pigeons. 

The larger one on the right, with his head up, is “Bowing.” With his neck feathers puffed out, he’s making a low cooing noise, bowing his head, and spinning around in circles. I like to call it the “pigeon dance.” The girls don’t seem to be paying much attention, though.
