[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While eating at Falafel's Drive In I looked up above the honeysuckle and saw these pigeons frittering about.

I will post some other shots of them to workshop.

::

Overall, the Columbidae tend to have short bills and legs, small heads on large compact bodies. The wings are large and have low wing loadings; pigeons have strong wing muscles (wing muscles comprise 3144% of their body weight) and are amongst the strongest fliers of all birds. They are also highly maneuverable in flight. [Wikipedia]
