Young Pigeons Napping in the 24th Mission BART Station

Young Pigeons 24th St. Mission

"Where's Swoops?"

Today BART passengers were busy checking out these young pigeons napping in the 24th St. Mission station.  While the picture does not do them complete justice, these rats birds were small and were not bothered by people getting close to them.

I was pretty interested as to why I had never seen young pigeons ever before.  Apparently adult pigeons feed their babies until they are nearly adult size, so they rarely leave the nest prior to becoming full size.
