We hosted a family of pigeons a few summers back, were amazed at what great parents they were and beautiful creatures.

In all seriousness, they're beautiful birds and I love having them around.  Like all wildlife that we see in the cities, their behaviors have sense and purpose - we've just changed the context around them.   Pigeons are obviously social and that explains the regular spacing as they perch on a human-created "cliff".   I do wonder though why they chose that spot, there's no obvious reason I can see.  Maybe it's something as basic as the elevation off the ground, the angle of the light, or a feeling of being safe from predators.  Whatever the criteria are, this location meets them.
