Rock Pigeon Columba livia

Introduced from Old World. Widespread and common in non-forested landscapes at lower elevations throughout Puget Trough, nesting mostly about cities, towns, and farms. In Kittitas County, common in similar habitats in Kittitas Valley, in Teanaway River Valley, and along I-90 corridor from Easton to Vantage; also nests on basalt cliffs of Columbia and Yakima Rivers. Washington Gap report (Smith et al. 1997) shows range extending across Quilomene/Colockum Wildlife Areas, Yakima Training Center, and forested parts of Kitsap County, but these predictions not supported by BBA records.
