A frequent visitor I named Rusty for his reddish coloration. This shot is one of the better images I have captured of Rusty flying down from my neighbor's roof. The frontal aspect is uncommon.

I know that's a pigeon/rock dove of some kind, but "Visual Search" is not helping. This is not a Red Kite.
Great shot!

Thanks for commenting, George. Rusty is a Rock Pigeon.

"Pigeons come in many different shades and plumage patterns. The typical “blue-bar” form (a bluish-gray bird with two black bands on the wing and a black tip to the tail); a “red bar” version (similarly marked, but with rusty red replacing bluish gray); and mostly red or mostly white forms."

Only you could make a pigeon look so good, Bubba! Interesting variety that you displayed expertly.

Thanks so much, Mike. Several recurring pigeon visitors have become nuisances. They run off other species and really make a mess with their droppings, plus they vacuum the feeders. Some have become almost tame, approaching me within two feet, begging for food. So, after attaining all the photos I need, it is time to discourage them from returning. The first step is mothballs near the feeder. We shall see.
