A Sign from God, an Escaped Pet, or Mere Flying Street Rat?


I snapped these pics with my phone camera the other day by the municipal lot near the corner of Fourth and Washington.

At first glance it was a beautiful white dove. On second glance it looked like a plain, ordinary city pigeon with slightly unusual coloration (not an albino; the eyes appeared dark, and the wings were a very pale gray, almost white).

I’ve seen an albino squirrel or two near Central Park, but I’d never seen this bird before. Any other sightings?

  1. It surprised my kids and I on a walk back from downtown. You know the economy is bad when you start seeing out of work white doves (if that is what it is).
