|Pigeon wandering down Karangahape Road, Auckland City|

Ok - this is a small piece of sheer speculation, but has anyone else noticed that city pigeons in New Zealand are a) huge, and b) often possessed of a subtle patch of iridescent blue/green feathers around their heads and necks? I wouldn't have even noticed except that I've recently been in the US and the pigeons are smaller and darker there. This observation or hallucination has caused me to wonder if the city birds are interbreeding with the odd kereru. The internet has been no help so I may remain doomed to wonder.
