Domesticated pigeons

Pigeons, also called Rock doves, are common and widespread throughout North America. Rock doves have been domesticated for many of years, causing weird plumages. But note, all domesticated pigeons (including the Rock dove) have white ceres and most domesticated plumages have at least some white (excluding white ceres). The most common common problems with domesticated pigeons is that, some birders misidentify then as a different species of pigeon and or dove. The most common encountered plumage of domesticated pigeons is the "checkered form" or the natural form. The natural form, as a iridescent purple green neck and two black bars on the back. Some birds are all white, mistaken the bird for an albino variant, but note red eyes on an albino, and no red eyes on a white variant.

Hope this helps!
