WHITE PIGEON ON DOMINICK STREET
My 101 year old mother has doves rather than pigeons in her garden so when I saw this white bird on Dominick street I decided to check if there was a difference between a pigeon and a dove and found the following information:
“Both dove and pigeon refer to the 308 species of birds from the Columbidae family. There’s no difference between a pigeon and a dove in scientific nomenclature, but colloquial English tends to categorise them by size. Something called a dove is generally smaller than something called a pigeon, but that’s not always the case. A common pigeon, for example, is called both a rock dove and a rock pigeon.
