Mystery dove

Unusual dove?

My friend sent me this picture of a dove, we think. It is colored differently than any I have ever had in my yard. It has been in her yard several days & is not scared of her. Wondering if anyone has ever seen one like this. She thinks it may be someones pet bird. Others I have shown the picture to think it is a leucistic Mourning Dove. Thank you for any help.

We figured out this is a domestic dove. The colors on this one seem to be the orange or tangerine ringneck.
