    Hey there, sweetie? May I join you?

    One last two-fer for Twosday. The male pigeons were getting a bit amorous (or remaining amorous as they tend to be throughout the year), but the females weren't showing any sign of interest yet.

    The Rock Dove is the ancestor of the domestic pigeon and is usually referred to as a “pigeon.” Rock Doves have been domesticated for several thousand years. The “True Rock Doves” scarcity today, is due to constant interbreeding with feral and domestic pigeons. They are natural coastal birds...

    Rock Pigeon (Columba livia) I was waling along the banks of Rio Piloto and this pigeon was sitting on a large bolder along the river berm and I could not resist taking its picture. Puerto Jeli, El Oro Province, Ecuador. Low tide along Rio Piloto in Puerto Jeli at ca. 0.5 m (1.6 ft) elevation.

    AAP Well, I suppose the purists might say it's a Feral Pigeon, but I'm counting it as a Rock Dove;) Towards the top of of this reserve is a cleft in the cliffs with a sloping bit of grass and at the back is a cave where you often find the Puffins, none this day apparently as I've got no...
