Your first post I see Robin.
It's a good picture but I am not absolutely certain it's the little dove, though it does look likely.
It is not in good condition - is that bare skin we see?
I think you could have identified it for yourself using a search engine (Google Images) Try 'grey bird with pink eye' - maybe!
Good wishes for all your future iSpot posting.

Diamond Dove

I agree its a Diamond Dove. It flew onto our shed and then onto the chicken coop, he did look like he's suffering loss of feathers. Thanks for ID the bird.
