I got a few rough photos of a fly-by Band-tailed Pigeon yesterday, 2-23. Wasn't sure about the ID at the time and had to review my photos a couple times and....... consult a friend. It was a single bird at about 120', flying east to west. The big, round tail caught my attention along with the dark color and really dark primaries. The way it was flying also got my attention.
