Welcome to Whatbird!

It looks like a Rock Pigeon to me.

I can get on board with that. I was not seeing a Rock Pigeon, and Cardinal was the closest thing I could come up with.

all the feedback is appreciated.

so rock pigeon or common ground dove?  the barn is over 100' from the camera.  the camera zooms a bit when it snaps photos.  the bird is likely 30' from the camera.

would this be a small bird or a medium sized bird in the photo?

I’d definitely say Common Ground-Dove for this one.

Common Ground Dove. You cant tell by the rusty orange/red primary wing feathers along with the bicolored bill.

Why not chipping? That eye stripe looks too bold for WCSP, IMO. And the crown looks too red.

If you zoom in on the pic you can see the pink bill(a trait of the dark lored Ssp.). Also you can see a black crown stripe and a tiny bit of white on top.
