White Pigeon Or A Dove


On Monday I noticed a white bird on my garden path and upon closer inspection I saw what looked like a white pigeon or dove. It’s legs had been cut on something but as I got closer it managed to fly up onto the barn roof.

It seems to be quite tame and I think when I first saw it, the bird had just injured itself. Later that day I saw if fly from our orchard acorss the neighbouring field and thought that this pretty bird had now found the stregth to resume it’s journey.

However the following day the bird had returned and was sitting on our garage roof so I was able to take this photo.

On and off this week I have seen this bird in various locations around the farmyard but I am still unsure whether it is a white pigeon or a dove, can anyone help?
