[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]
