The rock pigeon or dove oringinates from Europe and comes from the the huge Columbidae bird family. It's feathers feature a blueish gray shade around its head which fades into its metallic green and purple neck, transitioning into a pale gray with 2 black stripes that go across the length of their wings. This particular type of pigeon is a city dweller, taking refuge on windows ledges and under bridges, and eating whatever is left behind on the street. These birds are very intimate and take kardge responsibility in watching over their mate and offspring never leaving either behind. They never leave their habitat to migrate, but if they are put away from their best it knows how to get back fairly well. Being that there are millions of these pigeons their life status is at least concern and will be for a long time.
