Had blue/greenish wings and i believe it had somewhat of a purple color on its back. Had its head blue too, and long white feathers in its tail. Had the shape of a pigeon, but was very little compared to a normal one.
    My question is, can someone please tell me the name of its species? It resembles a passenger pigeon, but thats obviously impossible.
    Stupid question, i know, but cant find it anywhere.
    First of all, this is not a stupid question, because birds are awesome, and it makes me happy whenever people want to learn to identify them! I love when people ask bird questions because I'm a birder and I like to try to identify them. Based off of your bio, I'm assuming that you live in Texas and you did this recently (as in this month). Location and time are important factors in bird identification. I typed all of this information into the Audubon bird ID app I have on my phone:

    -Location: Texas
    - Month: January
    - Shape: Pigeon-like
    - Colors: Red, Blue, Green, Purple, White
    - Size: About the size of a Chickadee, Sparrow, or smaller

    It came up with these results. Despite what the pictures look like, these birds are all about the size of a sparrow:

    Common Ground Dove (Columbina passerina), Western coloring



    Ruddy Ground-Dove (Columbina talpacoti)



    Inca Dove (Columbina inca)



    Is it any of those? If it isn't, let me know if I should change some parameters in my search and I'll look again. Also, if this was a very young bird - like a juvenile - those can also be difficult to identify because different species can look similar to each other.

    EDIT: I looked more into this, since none of those really look like a passenger pigeon, and if I assume that this bird was about the size of a Robin instead of a sparrow, I found this:

    Red-billed Pigeon (Patagioenas flavirostris)



    That looks more like what you're describing. Is that it?

    Thanks a lot for all the info, and just to clarify, it happened about 6 to 8 months ago, so i don't know if date is important.
    And saddly, none of those had the colors the bird had, but it did had the size or a sparrow. Dont know if its an important detail, but its feathers were shinier than regular ones, a bit like how snakes scales "look shiny"
    And its good to know there are more people interested in birds too, i dont know much about birds myself, but i really like them and like to know about the different variety of species there are.

    Date is very important. Different birds are habitating areas during different seasons. So if this happened during the summer, you will have a different lot of birds to look at than if it happened during the winter. So now, I'll assume this happened during July or August. And instead of "Pigeon-like birds", I'm going to look more at swallow-like birds, since swallows have a similar body style to pigeons. (I also looked up pigeon-like birds for Texas in July and got the same results as before.) So here are some sparrow-sized birds that match your description, except these are of the swallow variety instead of the pigeon variety.

    Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica)



    Purple Martin (Progne subis)


    And here are some songbirds about the size of a sparrow in Texas in the summer that have red breasts and blue heads:

    Eastern Bluebird (Sialia sialis):



    Lazuli Bunting (Passerina amoena):



    Painted Bunting (Passerina ciris):



    Varied Bunting (Passerina versicolor):



    Western Bluebird (Sialia mexicana):



    I would kill to see a Painted Bunting. If that's what it was I will be SO jealous.

    Well, it did looked somewhat like the Painted Bunting but it didn't had red in all its chest, had some white in it,and it also had long white feathers in its tail too.
    Could it be some kind of mix?
    And again, thanks for the info.

    What does temperament mean? For example, in snooker they keep saying who has the best temperament and I have no idea what they mean when they say this. :C The Wikipedia definition didn't really help much...

    Temperament is a person's nature in a sense.

    Example: "Anna has an artistic temperament." Temperament in this sentence means, that Anna, has an "artistic" outlook on things. Meaning that she sees the world in an artistic way.

    Okay, now could you apply that to snooker terms? I'm guessing they mean who was the best personality when playing the game?

    I think it's more "Who has the best attitude"

    Okay. This is a Serebii related question. I opened up a trade shop and all the trade shops' little icon (the pink one with a little mail icon in it) are all pink, but the one for my shop is grey. Why is that? Also, how do I put a line through my words? (Like it's crossed off)

    IIRC that means it isn't a "Hot topic".

    Have you checked the charts list and listened to any potential songs from the list?

    Who else uses that sort of 'pickup' app named Tapp?
    I've been wondering if you might know whether once an icebreaker had been sent to someone, and then the sender deletes it from his pending list: If the addresseee's apparently accepted one's icebreaker, but the latter's already deleted it from his list- will there there still be a conversation between the two?

    I know that. But if one deletes theirs before they get to reply to his invitation?

    I am about to buy a used Wii U Legend of Zelda Edition, with Wind Waker pre-installed (presumably, I don't know. I'm not sure if the game is on disc or software). The owner says he will format the console before packaging, and I'm wondering if this will remove the game if it is pre-installed on the console. If the game is pre-installed, is it locked to the NNID or the console?
    So technically I've got three questions:
    1. Is the Wind Waker HD on disc or pre-installed?
    2. Will formatting the console remove the game if it is pre-installed?
    3. If not, will it be possible to play on a new NNID, or is the game locked to the owner's NNID?

    Hope you understood what I meant, and thanks much in advance!
