This unusually-colored mourning dove was hanging out with a flock of ~8 normal-colored doves. Could it be leucistic? A hybrid of some kind?

I have several also. They have a very distinctive black marking on both sides of their neck. Tail feathers when spread are very white. Underside also very white. Do not know what they are.

Just found out they are called Eurasian collared doves. That is what they are. Have never seen before and now I have quite a few. Area is Carver County Minnesota.

Just noticed these at my feeders this past week. A bit larger and lighter colored than the doves I usually have.
