"Rock doves" used to be in abundance downtown, roosting and nesting in the underpasses. It wouldn't surprise me if the City had waged a campaign to cull them. I can see no other reason why suddenly they all disappeared. No reports of disease, just pigeons gone, gone, gone. Remember all the pigeons down on Cabrillo Blvd, near the dolphin fountain?
