Last evening at my feeder area there was a very large plumpish grey pigeon. This was a first observance of this bird in this area. Markings include: overall medium grey color with darker grey-brown flight feathers, thin white band around the back of the head with some black and grey spotting beneath the band on the back of the neck, beak is yellow-orange with a black tip, and a band of about two inches at the end of the tail was lighter grey.
