Rare backyard visitor. Lots of Mourning Doves but shows this one as a Rock Dove known as a city pigeon in my official Audubon Society field manual.


Rock Dove Or Pigeon?

One reply on “Rock Dove or Pigeon?”

Texas Bird Family says:

They used to be called Rock Doves but they were renamed to Rock Pigeon. The current name is Rock Pigeon although old field guides read “Rock Dove”
