Description

Pigeon on the wall of a building. Behind the holey wall immediately to the left of the pigeon in the picture is a nest containing young pigeons. The adult would regularly go behind to tend to the nest. It would fly to a spot of ground on the other side of the courtyard to, apparently, pick up some food/supplies and bring it back to the young.

Actually, now that I think about it, maybe this was before there were any actual young in the nest, and this bird was getting debris to build the nest in this observation; and perhaps it was only later that I saw two adults caring for audible young there. Not sure.

Here is a video of it flying back and forth between that spot and the nest, predictably so: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMFszK7eK3s

Description from Wikipedia

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.
