Yes, rock pigeons. There are several white genetic variations in domestic pigeons. Albino (sex linked), recessive white (both parents must be, or carry the gene), pied white (random inheritance), grizzle white (homozygous grizzle, a partial dominant). 

Extremely common in domestic birds, fairly common in ferals. There are a number of them in the cities along the Orange County coast. Probably many descended from white Homing Pigeons gone feral. 

I know, TMI.
