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.

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