BT Pigeons are fairly common in your area and most of Orange Co.

Subject: [OrangeCountyBirding] Band-tailed Pigeons in MV

About half an hour ago, I noticed 2 Band-tailed Pigeons perched in our yard, noticeably larger and darker than the usual Mourning Doves, with the white stripe on the back of the neck and very yellow feet.  I took a few pictures and they flew off after a few minutes.  Are these ever seen around here? 
We're a few blocks west of the intersection of La Paz and Olympiad.
