Odd color pattern. Pigeon?

Recommended Posts

In Wichita KS, on campus at Wichita State University. Seen on multiple occasions all during the day, morning and afternoon during the month of August. Closest guess I'd put together (with the help of some friends) was a Domestic Pigeon. The bird just has an interesting color pattern. Thought I'd see what a more experienced eye had to say. Thanks!

Welcome to Whatbird!

This indeed is a domestic Rock Pigeon. There are many different breeds/variants of this species of pigeon - typical Rock Pigeons are blue-gray with light gray wings and green-purple iridescence on the neck, but this one right here is more rusty and white overall. @Pigeon, our expert at pigeon breeds here at Whatbird, might tell you more about the specific breed you have.

The closest color scheme I've seen is the third bird in the first row shown in this image @Pigeon. However, the bird I snapped a photo of doesn't appear to have many similarities other than color to the bird mentioned in the image below.

The pigeon farm's poster doesn't show all breeds or colors of domestics, just a subset.  Imagine it was a poster of dogs, with a photo of a black Labrador Retriever.  It doesn't show yellow or chocolate Labs, or black Cocker Spaniels, but they're dogs too!

And welcome to Whatbird!

Charlie is correct. This is a very small sampling of all the varieties of domestic pigeons. The color you pointed out is a barred ash red, one of the more common colors in most varieties of pigeons.
