Look what was sitting on our fence
when my son and I got home
from shopping tonight.
Thinking it is a white dove,
though we have only had gray doves where we live,
so not sure where it came from,
but it was not too afraid of us
till my husband got really close to it
and it flew on the neighbors lattice overhang.
Will have to see if it is around tomorrow.
Lucky for this bird that all the cats
in the immediate area
are indoor cats wanting to get out and get it.
This bird is not around this morning,
but found out from a friend what it is:
A White Homing Pigeon
"They are specially bred this way;
so it probably escaped from a breeder.
These white pigeons are often released
as "white doves" at weddings.
They call them white doves,
but they're actually pigeons."
