rock doves in a ciff cave
rock doves, Santa Barbra, California, 2008.  This pair of rock doves had built a nest in a small cave on the side of a cliff along the shore.  I had to get a picture of them because this is the natural nesting location of wild rock doves in Europe.  These rock doves actually look like they belonged here.

This species is extremely rare in Arizona (USA) because only a few individuals have ever crossed the border from northern Mexico. Northern Mexico makes the very northern extent of their range. However, in Brazil the species is rather common.
