    There was a chicken-dove-pigeon looking thing on my friend's roof top. What is this?

    That's a pigeon all right! It looks to be a fancy breed, though. It's probably an escapee from someone's flock, or just a free ranger.

    No offense to pigeon lovers, but that bird looks rather creepy.

    It does look like a cartoon doesn't it. You might want to post in the pigeon board and see if anybody can id it. Being white, wonder if it is lost from one of those white bird wedding release type things.

    Looks like some type of Cropper Pigeon that's either molting or has been attacked by a bird of prey and was injured on the neck.
