This very pretty bird has been coming to my garden several times daily for the last couple of weeks. She is not ringed so, I'm assuming she doesn't belong to anyone.
The resident very aggressive male pigeon has allowed her to stay and he and the other pigeons ignore her so, I'm assuming this is a female.
I would love to think it is a dove - very romantic but, I do believe it's a pigeon. Can anyone cast any light on this bird.

Probably a captive bred white dove that has escaped (the type that magicians use). True albino forms of feral pigeons are extremely rare.
