Not a pigeon… but a stock dove!

I was reading up on these birds and was interested to discover that the squabs feed on a milky secretion from the lining of the adult’s crops called pigeon’s  milk – which they take by thrusting their beaks into the adult’s throat. I have not been able to see these squabs very well until the camera changes to IR. I think there are two, possibly three, but I did see the adult going in and feeding them and there was a lot of flapping around going on!
