The Dove or white pigeon (Columbiformes, to get technical) is a symbol of Peace and also represents the Holy Spirit. The spiritual angle of (Rest in Peace) and the soul taken flight (upward, one prays) all fall in. This should not be confused with Mourning which are not used in funerary practice, it"s just a name, and these are tan or brownish colored, so-called from pathetic cooing calls. They, too are of the Pigeon group.
