ROCK PIGEON

Ubiquitous yet fascinating

We can see rock pigeons in villages and towns comfortable with human presence, feeding on insects and grains. Their grey body with black bars across wings, green and pink iridescence on neck are alluring. They feed usually in flocks and roost on roof tops or window shades. It’s entertaining to watch them bobbing heads, preening feathers and gathering twigs during nesting season. Their deep cutrr-coo calls and sounds of their flapping wings are one amid varied sounds that urban dwellers hear all day except that birds sounds are calming to our senses.
