flock perching on power line

Rock Dove flock perching on power line, New Jersey, Cape May Point Rock Doves were introduced from Europe and have many domestic varieties that get loose and interbreed with the feral population. This leads to the great variety of colors and patterns that we see in the wild population. Originally a cliff dweller, Rock Doves have adapted admirably to human cliffs, our city habitations and older office buildings. Homing pigeons have been extensively used in navigational experiments. To test for the ability to sense the earth's magnetic field magnets have been strapped to their backs. Pigeons have proven able to sense and navigate with their internal compass.
