Yes, just the right angle. Nicely caught. But it isn't a dove. It's a feral pigeon.

Thanks for the interest everyone. Yes, a bit of googling did bring up a "Feral Dove" label.

Which makes me feel less stupid for not knowing the difference!!!

Simpler in German - we only have one word . But of course 'Taube' can be combined with a lot of different nouns to distinguish different kinds of pigeons/doves. And yes, nice angle.

"Feral Dove"
Also known as "rat of the skies" but I didn't want to be too unkind.
