Columba guinea (Speckled pigeon, Rock pigeon) by 

The Speckled pigeon is common in many places in southern Africa, especially in South Africa. It usually lives in rocky, mountainous areas, but can also be found in buildings and gardens. It feeds mostly on seeds, rarely eating small fruits and flowers. The nest is usually placed on ledges, gullies or buildings, and is built by the female, with the male collecting the material. It lays 1-3 eggs, which are incubated by both sexes. The chicks are brooded for the first 6 days of their lives, after which brooding ceases. The nestling period is highly variable with different regions, full range 21-37 days.
