Pure white doves but how are they classified, Collared?
No interactions present.
All varieties of domestic pigeon or dove that are generally encountered have wild Rock Doves, Columba livia, as their ancestors.
Some of these domesticated pigeons since returned to a 'wild', or feral, state after escaping, being released, or getting lost when released for races etc, which means that Feral Pigeons are also the same species as wild Rock Doves.
Thanks, That is what I finally decided to call them
We have Rock Doves, Columba livia, on the Sutherland coast.
