Hungarian Pigeons

Just wondering if these were all Rock Pigeons I found on a recent trip to Hungary. All were found in June of 2017. Thank you.

1-3 are all feral Rock Doves (feral pigeons); 4 is a Wood Pigeon.

You ever heard of Hungarian Giant House pigeons? They're enormous...

The bird on the wire is a Woodpigeon (Columba palumbus). Once upon the time they used to be very shy of humans (to the point of deserting incubated eggs due to slight disturbance) but now they are common in downtown Belgrade, nesting in trees along the busiest streets in city center (they are also still common in any parks and woodlands).
