Rock Dove

The Rock Dove/Pigeon , or just plain Pigeon, tends to be largely unappreciated, due to its association with the mess they live in, and because they are so common. I actually think they are quite beautiful.
They stay with us all year round , enduring the harshest of winters. That surely has to be admired doesn't it ?

I took this photo while walking across the CN train bridge a few weeks ago on a very cold day :

I don't particularly care for pigeons but I do think they make for beautiful shots. I love the irridescent colors on their necks.
