This is pigeons from Moscow Hermitage Garden.
I saw them few times and they are always together. To the extent that they are willing to break the tree, just to sit on a one branch together.
You can see it on the next photo:

The mansion of merchant Tarasov at Spiridonovka was constructed in 1909-1912 by architect Zholtovsky and was inspired and copied the palatio Thiene in Vicenza, Italy by Andrea Paladdio.
It is bright and recognizable spot in city's mix of styles, times and colors.

These days the building is occupied by the Institute of Africa of Russian Academy of Science.

Here you can see the photos of the remarkable interior.

Continuing yesterday's theme, created by Irina.
Moscow looks something like this again. Snow, snow, snow and snow.
