Rock Dove 1

 

All birds in the Algarve are generally considered no longer to be pure wild stock and are best regarded as Feral Pigeons. Nevertheless, individuals which inhabit the cliffs at Lagos and Sagres show plumage that is to all intents and purposes identical to truly wild birds. The accompanying photograph was taken near Boumalne Dad├Ęs in Tinghir Province in Morocco and may well depict a genuinely wild individual.
