Hi Braxton,

Well, there are many records according to eBird through most of OC and
including Mission Viejo and the intersection Joan mentioned.

Whoops, that’s supposed to say fairly, not dairy!

While Band-tailed Pigeons are dairy common in inland OC, they are
quite uncommon/rare along the coast. Also, I haven’t seen any in
south OC(including my town, Ladera Ranch, and Mission Viejo).

BT Pigeons are fairly common in your area and most of Orange

About half an hour ago, I noticed 2 Band-tailed Pigeons
perched in our yard, noticeably larger and darker than the
usual Mourning Doves, with the white stripe on the back of the
neck and very yellow feet. I took a few pictures and they
flew off after a few minutes. Are these ever seen around
We're a few blocks west of the intersection of La Paz and
