Corralitas Drive: Band-Tailed Pigeon

Photo: Diane Edwardson, August 18, 2013.  While shooting cloud photos yesterday, several gigantic pigeons flapped loudly through the trees.  These native pigeons are at least three times the size of a standard pigeon.  There have been a lot Band-tailed Pigeons around Corralitas and the Red Car Property lately.  I'm not exaggerating when I say they flap loudly.  They definitely catch your attention. 

Where's a Cooper's Hawk when you need one?
