He's hanging out on our patio for some reason.

I'm thinking he is a fancy pigeon.
Could someone have lost him?

This person sells them

Kind of looks like a fancy pigeon to me.
Expensive little things.

It seemed like he was trying to get in and ran into the screen. Not sure whether to let him in or not.

In the pics I am looking at on google, they have red feet.

I'd let him in but I let everyone in.
I'm not sure if they have any diseases or parasites.
Just to be safe, wash your hands after if you touch him.

Hoodie will know what he is. Smile

You can kinda see the blue/green on his neck, but the rest is black and white.

Poor little fella looks tired.
Does he have a band on his leg?

Someone up your way sells different breeds.......mind you this was first of July. Wonder if they're missing any or if someone bought one and lost it?

The black and white one in the second pic looks almost identical (top right). Markings are a bit different, but close.

That's the one that caught my eye. Wonder if he'd know of other owners in the area? I doubt that they're very common. Probably a pigeon club there too

Put an ad on kijiji to see if someone lost it. Not sure what else to do.

Wow, the owner has already been and gone. Glad I got him home.

edit: whoever said a highflyer was correct!

I didn't let it in, it just wouldn't leave. I have enough to clean up on my patio.

I put the ad on kijiji and had a response less than 5 mins later. In less than 20 minutes he was here to get the bird....even brought the birds brother to help convince him to get in the bird box.

The owner didn't say much other than it had gotten away a few days ago and he thought it was more than likely dead at this point. He seemed pretty happy to get it back. Smile
