Photographing Pigeons – No, Mourning Dove

I took these pictures of this pigeon (at least I think it’s a pigeon – now I think it’s a mourning dove; it doesn’t look like the greyish blue pigeons in New York City) in the Old City of Jerusalem. A little boy with blond payis (curly sidelocks that some religious Jewish boys wear) asked me in a thickly-accented English why I was taking pictures of a bird. It seemed to be amusing to him. I told him I had also photographed ibex and hyrax, too. “Oh,” he said, “you like taking pictures of animals”. Yes, I agreed.

More camera critters here.
