What kind of pigeon?

Recommended Posts

Don't think I've seen this color pigeon before. Location is southern Nevada. Looking at the recent pigeon post with the photos, and Googling didn't help. Thanks!

I don’t see a band on either of them, so probably just ferals. They have the appearance of being adolescents, perhaps nestmates. They are Barred ash red, same color as the bird we have been discussing in the other post. Three colors in domestic rock doves, blue, ash red and brown, with blue being the wild color. All others are derivatives of these three color families, with genetic factors altering their appearance.
