Adding this really bad pic in foggy conditions specifically to record the dead bird. Took multiple pics of these birds which were very active, with the exception of the one that must be dead (lump on the ledge, two birds in from the left).

Pigeons and doves constitute the bird clade Columbidae, that includes some 310 species. They are stout-bodied birds with short necks, and have short, slender bills with fleshy ceres. Doves feed on seeds, fruits, and plants. This family occurs worldwide, but the greatest variety is in the Indomalaya and Australasia ecozones.
