white pigeon

I saw an all white pigeon, and one with black and white, on the street, at least i assume them to be pigeons. Could they be doves that people release at weddings and the like?

They are most likely Feral Pigeons also called Rock Doves, yes I think the population has come from escapees and released birds that decide not to come back.

most likely light mutations of domestic pigeon/rock dove

there is also a light-coloured Barbary dove that is a common aviary subject and escapee 

and then there's a native White-headed pigeon.

Helen has been reported to Holly, suspect spam, but some of her other posts don't contain the link. I think you will be right Rick, is most likely a spammer. Haven't been as many lately, thankfully.
