Looking across the parking lot at the dock I saw what looked like a white seagull bopping back and forth in the parking lot. Upon further inspection it was this pigeon. Note the white hair/feathers on its talons (is that what you call them when they’re on a pigeon, or do you call them feet or something else?) Talons sounds a little too aggressive for a white pigeon but WTF do I know about pigeons?
There is a white pigeon with a band on its leg hanging around our little neighborhood. I first saw it on our patio on May 23rd. It has been hanging out between our house and a couple of the neighbor’s houses. (Riverview Road, the one way part that goes in a circle, on the Annisquam)
Can’t get close enough to catch him or try to see the band. I am sure he belongs to someone that does special events or races them. Thought maybe you could get the word out there about him. He isn’t wild, so he is not as afraid – worried a coyote, or cat may get him.
