Barbary Dove

The judgment is that the pale individual mincing around my back lawn is an escape, a Barbary Dove. According to what I have been told (thanks, Peter), the taxonomy of the Streptopelia genus is quite messy (My word, not Peter's. I think his word was "interesting"). If you wish to know more, you are clearly in dire need of a life.
