This pretty grey with black stripes on back wings with iridescent chest just flew in my backyard . It has a blue/green band around its right foot. Looks like ID of some sort. It's very friendly but not sure what to do with it. Any thoughts?

Based on picture and description, could this be some sort of homeing pigeon?

ID band on leg also seems to indicate homeing pigeon.
