pigeons- one of the few birds in my area that you can visually recognize a single individual bird and easily identify him from others. These ones are mostly dark in color but you can still see the different patterns each one has and that they are all different.  We do have all-white ones and others that do have some sporadic coloring in them.

I never used to pay attention to them before thinking that they were a bad bird to have around, but I've learned they can be quite pleasurable to watch, especially when you're feeding them. They are quite friendly and trusting birds.
