For those who spend all their time in cities, the idea of getting excited over seeing a pigeon likely seems absurd. After all, pigeons are pigeons – if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all. Right?
Well… not quite. While the non-native pigeon commonly seen in cities throughout the U.S. and Canada (officially named the Rock Dove) is not a bird of great interest to most birders, the native one – the Band-tailed Pigeon – most certainly is.
Pam from Redwood City, California, was fortunate enough to have had three visit her deck recently and pose for a few BirdCam photos. Thanks for sharing these Pam!
