Yes a Crested Pigeon with a leg band. Can the number be seen? That way we could know its history.
Based on that, at first read, I wondered what the subject line meant, I will use this example to add a suggestion. Although we should not be overly serious and sometimes I am. This shows the value of using correct names with capital letters. Because Banded Pigeon (= Banded Fruit-Dove) and Wood Pigeon (in Europe) are both another species. I have never heard of Crested Pigeon being referred to as wood pigeon.
