A friend sent me some photos of two birds that visited her yard in the new north end of Burlington a few weeks ago. The birds are obviously a type of pigeon, perhaps escapees from a local breeding place. 

They appear to walk very upright and have a black-and-white "ruff" around their necks that looks like a Ruffed Grouse displaying. their heads are white as are their tails. They are nearly a matched pair.

Any ideas?
