White-winged Dove

White-winged Dove
Photographed in my garden, best viewed in Lightbox. The white-winged dove (Zenaida asiatica) is a dove whose native range extends from the south-western United States through Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean.
White-winged doves are large, plump doves at 29 cm (11 in). They are brownish-gray above and gray below, with a bold white wing patch that appears as a brilliant white crescent in flight and is also visible at rest. Adults have a patch of blue, featherless skin around each eye and a long, dark mark on the lower face. Their eyes are bright crimson. Wikipedia

Thanks so much Bev!!! We were having lunch on our patio, (I had my camera on the table of course) when one of our resident White-wings decided to drop in for a timely drink from the bird bath. I was able to capture the image with a 300mm lens. We have enjoyed these rather unusual doves both here and in New Mexico. Warm regards, Michael

Maurice thanks!! I had no idea the eyes colours were so distinctive until I could see them in this photo. You just never know who/what will stop by when sitting outside. Best regards, Michael
