Pigeons in town

Challenge #6 in the City Life series. Hosted by broidez.
Challenge has finished
The pigeon has been refered to as "a rat with wings". It is abundant in our cities and we often walk past without photographing them because they look so ordinary - relative to extraordinarily colorful plumage found on so many other birds. This challenge is to find the extraordinary in the ordinary. Show us a picture of this bird, in a city scene, that makes us proud to have the pigeon dwelling with us in the city.

Taken in the Old Town of Rhodes, Greece, pigeons tend to make a stop by the fountain there to quench their thirst... :)
