|Rock Dove (Columba livia)
(aka Rock Pigeon, Domestic Pigeon, Feral Pigeon)
Brazilian name: Pombo doméstico
The Domestic Pigeon has been introduced by man to most countries of the world and it was introduced to Brazil in the 16th century.
They have developed a wide variety of plumages in their feral state but this individual, photographed in the centre of São Paulo City, looks similar to its wild ancestor with a white rump, two black bars on the wings and a purplish iridescence on the back of the neck.
