Spotted Dove

Before we left for China I bought a 1.4 teleconverter for my lens.  Here’s some pigeons.  I think they look too soft.  And very cold.  The one on the left is so puffed up he must have trouble seeing.

China has feral pigeons too, but they also have this much lovelier version.  It looks like he’s wearing a scarf.  They’re not intimidated by people at all.  I took these with a 55 mm.  They sound a little like Mourning Doves.

So pretty!  This guy was in Hong Kong, but I saw them at the panda preserve in Chengdu too.

We have Eurasian Collared Doves that are a non-native species.  I would say we should transplant these guys too, but I think we have enough doves right now.  The Eurasian Collared Doves are taking over my neighborhood!
