When I wrote "one on the right"

I was viewing the clipped image, so the more doubtful one is not actually the rightmost. It looks as though it may be a leucistic Collared Dove but is less clear than the others.

Streptopelia

There is a possibility of African Collared Dove, too, though I don't know what the current status of that is on Gran Canaria.

Hybrids

Having just had a little read around it appears hybridisation may also be something to consider too.
