Rock Doves in St. Louis

The rock dove, or what most people think of as a pigeon or a rat with wings, is quite common in Philipsburg and Marigot, but I don’t see it much outside of those cities. It was a bit of a surprise to see a flock land in St. Louis, but it was also a good chance to get a few photos of them without concrete in the background. Plus, they really are quite pretty. That said, hopefully they will remain mostly centered around the big cities rather than displacing the several native species of dove and pigeon on the island.
