White bird with black wings - seen in Atlanta area

This bird was sighted in the Atlanta, GA area in mid-November. It appeared to be in transit and was only around for an hour or so. Size appears to be similar to a dove.

Nice photo, Alan. Looks very similar to a Snow Bunting, but I don't think they migrate as far south as Georgia. I'm sure our readers can help.

The bird is in Atlanta NEW

Saw this bird at my school in Clarkston. No band on it's leg. Not very scared of people. We were concerned it was hurt and it did fly but not far. Hanging out on the covered walkway.
We've never seen this bird before and it is so interesting!

It looks like a Black Saddle Homing pigeon. This is a type of fancy pigeon bred from the Rock Pigeon. If it's got a band on its leg, then it belongs to someone. If not, then it's a feral pigeon.

This bird is currently sitting outside right now at 10:58pm on the edge of the top of my barn door not far off the ground about 10 feet. I put some sweet feed grain on the ground for it. I even walked under it and opened the door slowly and it didn't fly away? hmm, strange!
