Rock Dove (Columbia Livia)

df

Last Sunday, my wife and I went sightseeing at the King River.  Along this River lie many Buddhist temples.  We decided to stop at Wat Rakang Kositaram Woramahawihan.  By the way, Rankang means bell, and according to the Thai tradition: ringing bells are a sign of widespread fame and a good reputation.  After walking around this temple, I decided to go out through the temple's gate closing to the River.  Once on the River, I saw an enormous crowd gathered watching a lot of Rock Doves (Columbia Livia).  People gather to feed the fish by throwing bred into the river.  So, this is a good chance for these birds to have plenty of food.   Due to these birds are surrounded by people every day they are really tame, thus it was very easy to take photos.
