Saturday scenes and scenery: birds under foot?

This brown dove was huddled on our front stairs one morning. I wondered if she was injured.

Having encountered one grounded bird, I started noticing that the situation is fairly common. This pigeon let me within two feet of her.

This bedraggled creature was a little more shy, but not much.

This pair, encountered in the bowels of an underground parking lot, left me wondering whether we're really causing pigeons to find it adaptive to nest on concrete?

The Mission District's ubiquitous sidewalk stenciling artists have added this bird. A stomping duck?
