Hi Monika! The Rock Dove, the Feral pigeon and the Domestic pigeon are all Columba livia. True wild Rock doves, which have a restricted habitat and distribution, are pale grey with two black bars on each wing, while domestic and feral pigeons are very variable in colour and pattern. Feral pigeons are domestic pigeons that have returned to the wild and are found in cities worldwide, including in Hungary.
Stian Waaler: "The Rock Dove has a restricted natural resident range in western and southern Europe, North Africa, and into South Asia." (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Columba_livia) Not in Hungary.Columba livia domestica?
