Medium-size, overall gray pigeon with pinkish breast and an indistinct black bar on the closed wing. In flight, the pale gray wing panel contrasts sharply with the black wingtip and broad trailing edge. Underwing gray, also with a broad black trailing edge (underwing is usually white on wild Rock Pigeon and feral pigeons). Found in open woodland, farmland with hedges and scattered trees. Rather shy and mostly seen in flight. Feeds mainly on the ground, in pairs or small groups that associate readily with wood-pigeons. Gives a series of low, rather hoarse coos.
