dove v. pigeon—defining, finding

Oh dear. I fear I basically just thought pigeons were "city doves," but maybe I'm wrong; are they actually different species, or is one a type of the other, or what?

At any rate, been looking through mid-century US cookbooks & seeing recipes for doves, particularly mourning doves. You don't see much of that these days, do you (I don't watch FN)? And I've certainly never seen them in your average grocery store (including WF).

Thoughts on where to find either/or—and when, if seasonality's a factor? I'm in Denver, so, without meaning to knock the city, the world is not exactly at my fingertips; there are a couple of decent, generalized Hispanic/Asian grocers, but not a huge range of specialty markets.
