They sure are Dave!

For example, Columba livia : in the IOC list of common names it is Common Pigeon: Christidis & Boles 2008 and Howard & Moore 2003 Rock Dove, Clements 2007 Rock Pigeon, Pizzey & Knight 2007 Feral Pigeon and on and on. And that is just one species.

For me, I think I will stick with the IOC list of common names, as at least it has been drawn up with some attempt at international consultation and co-operation.
