Medium-size, overall gray pigeon with pinkish breast, indistinct black bar on closed wing. In flight shows big black wingtip and broad trailing edge to wings, contrasting with pale gray panel in middle of wing. Underwing gray with broad black trailing edge (underwing usually white on Rock Pigeon and feral pigeons).
