There is no strict division between pigeons and doves, which share certain features, including small, rounded heads, small, slim bills with a small fleshy patch at the base, rounded bodies with dense, soft feathers, tapered wings and short, scaly legs, and cooing or crooning calls. The wild rock dove has long been domesticated and ‘escaped’ to live wild as the familiar town pigeon. There are many species all over the world.

If you said that Nephro you would be spot on, and if your spot on it will show that its Art who as no knowledge of common garden birds.

You can all ways tell a Wood Pigeon easily because they have slippery feet.
