yup looks just like the mourning dove that my friend go, who was young. they make the cutest noises, and make good pets, if you are interested in taking him in and hand feeding him. My friend used a syringe, and a straw that was big enough for him to put his beak thru, it also depends on the age too. But if you are interested in taking him in and releasing after everything is done, it is a safe thing to do. The outside birds Will not hurt him for human "smell" they cannot sm ell. My friend and I have released quite a bit of birds, from pigeons to sparrows, to starlings. We have seen alot of them ag ain. Some have even come back to us to visit, and get more food!!! lol it's quite a hit!!!!!!
