In the UK our wild bird population includes feral pigeons (rock doves), collared doves, wood pigeons, stock doves (stock pigeons) and turtle doves. Their temperament, habitat and their natural diet can differ, so it will help if you can determine what sort of bird you have. These pages should help you do that.
