Hello all, a pure white bird has turned up in my garden with a flock of rock doves that I feed. The white bird has an orange ring on it's left leg but won't let me near it to catch it. It feeds well. My post code is HA3 7DA, that's Harrow, Middlesex. If you have lost a pure white pigeon then this may be it, give me a shout.

Hi Dinger, thanks for coming on and letting us know you have this bird around. It sounds like it's a 2019 bred pigeon, unfortunately unless you can get close enough to it to get the full ring details its unlikely we will be able to find out who it belongs to.
Having said that there probably aren't that many fanciers who will have pure white pigeons so someone might come forward 🀞🀞 if you are feeding it regularly you might find it heads off on it's own after a little while.
Thanks again and all the best.
Saul

Well one of my "Logans" is AWOL with an orange band on the left leg and a yellow 2019 band on the right. No reason for it to be in Harrow though.

This could be your bird Saul. My old eyes have just seen the ring on it's right leg, it's a sort of browny pinky colour., hard for me to see it against the colour of the bird's leg which is roughly the same. It seems to have 'gone native' and is quite happy with this flock and as I spend a fortune on seed it will grow fat and healthy if it stays here. There was a hawk that took a couple of "my" birds but it got the German Hornet disease and is no more.

Tell him he can come home if he straightens his life out! The ring was never registered from the guy I bought him from though I have the transfer paper somewhere.
