This Speckled pigeon is a bit too big to be comfortable on the cup filled with wild bird seeds, but that doesn’t bother him at all! The Speckled Pigeon or (African) Rock Pigeon, Kransduif (Afrikaans) (Columba guinea) is a pigeon which is a resident breeding bird in much of Africa south of the Sahara.
