What is this garden visitor?

Hi All,

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

  • Hi Toby

    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.

  • Thanks Tony.

    I assume an escapee then? It didn't have fluffy feet however looking on Google and reading some bits they come in a variety of colours and with and without fluffy feet.

    Cheers
  • I expect someone is missing it. Do you have any way of putting the word out on social media perhaps?
