Frosty dove with crescent shaped
white head spot.  Note the grizzled mid wing area.  Frosty varies from minimal
wing grizzling [barely detectable] and no white head patches to extreme grizzled
mid-wing area and much white head patches.  The tail corners usually are more whitened with frosty.  And the bill tip usually has a thin vertical stripe or white tip.
