Doves: Part I

On to Doves, 

The Rock Pigeon - as most know is found throughout the United States and Mexico -- typically in City Parks taking breads crumbs from humans.

The Band-tailed Pigeon, on the other hand,  is only found along the Pacific Coast and Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado. And unlike the Rock Pigeon, it is a wilderness bird, preferring oak and conifer forests. This photo was taken on Mount Lemmon at about 8,000 feet:
