Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Common and conspicuous in wooded and semiopen habitats, including towns and gardens. Forms flocks, especially in winter. Often rather unaware, and frequently crashes noisily and clumsily out of hedges and bushes. Display flight consists of flap-flap-flap climb followed by descending glide. Distinctive, large bulky gray pigeon with big white neck patch (lacking on juvenile in late summer–autumn). Bold white wing band striking in flight; tail broadly tipped black.
