[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Pigeons have small heads, short necks, stout bodies with short legs, and sleek plumage and have a fleshy or waxy protuberance, the cere, at the base of the bill. They dwell in trees or on the ground and feed on seeds, fruit, acorns and other nuts, and insects. Pigeons fly rapidly and are noted for their cooing call. They build loose, almost flat, nests of twigs, bark, straw, and weeds; the female lays one or two tan or white eggs.
The best-known species is the common pigeon, whose wild ancestor, native to Europe and Asia, is called the rock dove. It is about 33 cm (about 13 in) long, bluish gray above, with black markings on the wings and a whitish rump; below, it is purplish on the breast and bluish on the abdomen. The sides of the neck, especially in males, are iridescent. The more than 200 domestic breeds as well as the variably colored street or feral pigeons are derived from this species.

Great capture on the pigeon Jorge. The sharpening looks a bit overdone though, unless it just looks that way due to the lower quality JPEG that we're limited to posting.
