Turkey dove?

Bird question. I know nothing of birds, and Googling spits out strange answers (because really, I can't figure out how best to word it for a search engine).

I was watching the news tonight (Fox 2, in Detroit), and there was this short piece about a bird that's been hanging around some sort of pizza/coffee place (I can't remember which) -- yeah, slow news day. No-one knew what kind of bird it was.

It was completly white, about the size of a hefty pigeon. It looked like a dove, except for its tail, which was kind of fan-shaped, almost like a turkey's. "Turkey dove" is what my friend called it, which I'm quite sure isn't the proper name.

Any bird watchers have a clue?
