Strange-looking Pigeon or mourning dove in Help Me Identify a North American Bird Posted May 24, 2021 · Edited May 24, 2021 by Apersnom Seem in Texas today. Usually mourning doves come and go all of the time, but I have never seen one this color. Is it a mourning dove, a pigeon, or something else? Please let me know, thanks. I don’t know if you can tell from the photos, but it looked kind of white.
