    Man! How to make me like WSB even more: Put a bird on it! Appreciate seeing a less glamorous example here too, an “everyman” bird. Beautiful shot.

    Thanks! Band-tailed pigeons are a little glamorous. They’re big forest birds, native to West, unlike their urban cousins who were introduced to North America.

Sorry, comment time is over.
