Rock Pigeon Columba livia

Description

There are around a dozen feral Rock Pigeons at Pinnacles National Park and they are among my favorite birds there. As far from "city" pigeons as they can be, they have reverted back to an entirely wild state. They are fast-flying, skittish around people and never seen picking around the picnic areas or parking lots, and are preyed on by the resident hawks and falcons.
