stock dove (Columba oenas)

The stock dove (Columba oenas) is a species of bird in the family Columbidae, the doves and pigeons. The three western European Columba pigeons, though superficially alike, have very distinctive characteristics. The wood pigeon may be readily distinguished by the white on its neck (in adults) and wings. The rock pigeon and stock dove are more alike in size and plumage, but wild specimens of the former have a white rump and two well-marked dark bars on the wing, while the rump of the stock dove is grey and its wing bars incomplete. The feral pigeon (the same species as rock pigeon) is highly variable, and indistinctly marked grey specimens with the white rump missing can sometimes resemble the stock dove quite closely. Order: Columbiformes, Family: Columbidae, Genus: Columba, Species: Columba oenas Linnaeus, 1758.
