It would appear to be a "Pigeonus Normalus", or an "average pigeon"







I could be wrong though, I'm no ornithologist.

No, it is not the normal pigeon, though it looks like pigeon in all other respects except for the feathers - see this close up.

It almost looks like a spotted dove, but I don't know for sure. Nice pic!

Lovely pictures. From the body and bill shape, it has to be a type of dove. Beautiful bird.
