All birds are Feral Pigeos in my opinion

我觉得这些都是家鸽

The herdsmen here have no tradition of raising dove.


2018-01-11. Askar Isabekov:

i agree that some flying birds show white base of tail, but no one bird in 1-4 photos don't show this main feature of Hill Pigeon (like this one). Probably this population is hybridic, based in Hill Pigeon origin mixed by Ferral Pigeons.

Thank you for reminding me. I'll study it again.

Thanks for Isabekov Askar!
There are many Rock pigeons in the nanshan area of urumqi. They live in herdsmen's settlements, They are wild.but some time Ferral Pigeos mixed in.

应该是原鸽,有时有家鸽混血。

感谢老师们的分享,我再研习对比一下。感谢批评指正。
