New York Pigeon

I've been meaning to do a series of pigeon drawings for a long time, and now's a good time to start? Why pigeons? Well, they're kind of New York's unofficial bird, and I think they get a bad rap. There actually pretty cool looking birds. 

The artwork I'll do will be sort of redemptive; burnishing the pigeon's image a little. I want to show them with some pride and dignity. After all, they're actually doves (rock doves), and doves are a significant bird. 

First I started a Pinterest page and gathered some images that caught my eye:
