Pigeon Parrot

Owners of racing pigeons in Spain paint their birds for identification, but also to protect them from Birds of Prey. I would suggest this is such a bird.

Painted pigeons

I never knew that - it would certainly explain phil58's unusual bird.

Pigeons

Sorry definately not painted there is a whole flock of them with differing colours.(reds blues greens and yellows) I also have a video which shows a lot of under colour.
