Well, they're back, but they are over a week late. Our first Band-tailed Pigeons (4) showed up in our yard today looking for their cracked corn. We live off Plateau Road near Caughlin Ranch in west Reno. In the past several years, the Band-tails have arrived on schedule in the first week of March. Bet this year, they wish they had waited a few more days. We got over a foot of snow in Friday's storm.
