We were impressed by the interesting plumage on this garden visitor. I assume its Dove or Pigeon, but not sure as I can't say I have seen one like this before. Any ideas? See photos in the folder link below
It's one of these so called Fancy Pigeons beloved by pigeon breeders. I think it's probably an Indian Fantail Pigeon see link below.
Presumably it's escaped from captivity.
