Birdorable Rock Pigeon

Baby Birdorable: Rock Pigeon

April 23rd, 2010 in Baby Birds, Pigeons & Doves 7 comments

If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Below are some baby photos (shared via Flickr) of the Rock Pigeon. Rock Pigeons breed any time of the year. Their natural preferred nesting sites were coastal cliff faces; these birds have adapted well to city life by using buildings and other constructions in place of cliffs. Incubation lasts 17 to 19 days and is shared by both parents. Babies fledge at about 30 days.
