Saw this white dove-like bird perched with some European Starlings.  Using Whatbird I can't figure out what a white dove would be.  Any ideas?

 

Maybe it was released at a wedding, and never went home.  Sad.

This actually looks like a Eurasian Collared-Dove, with that dark base to the tail feathers.

Okay, maybe that's just the way the light is hitting it.  just seemed very white

EC Doves are very nearly white on the breast and undertail, so I don't think it's a trick of the light.
