This one is for some friends. They spotted this bird on their cottage roof in Central Ontario.

They are casual birders and described it to me as much larger than a typical pigeon with a goose-like head. It does have a band.

We know that size can be deceiving and looking at the size ratio with the shingles and the fascia it doesn't appear that large to me, or does it? Using Sibley it looks like a Checkered or Pied Rock Dove.

Any thoughts.
