Image Description: This photograph shows us a white pigeon or dove pictured on a dark blue background on a large button or pin; making it difficult to tell with surety, white pigeons can are often mistaken for doves. A white pigeon is a specialty breed of homing or release pigeons; they are the breed that is released during sporting events and other ceremonies. These releases are always done in small numbers, for if hundreds of doves were to be released at once, they would become stranded and probably starve in the wild while not being able to take care of themselves. There are many different species of white homing pigeons, with some being bred as simple companions, with the fastest birds weaned out and kept for their exceptional speed and homing abilities.
