dove

a bird which together with the pigeon forms the large bird family Columbidae. There appears not to be a clearcut distinction between the two groups and some types have alternative names, one of them a pigeon, the other one a dove. They vary in color, but mostly within the range of gray, through cream and light brown to a deep beige, sometimes with markings. The legs are clean of feathers.
