A brown Dove similar to the Mourning Dove except with a large white patch on the wing, a rounded tail with white corners and black stripping. It has a range from the Southwest States to Peru, but is becoming more common in the South. It can be seen along the Gulf Coast, and is known as the Dove of the desert. It has a habitat in river woods, mesquites, groves, and towns. It diets on mostly seeds, some fruits, and berries. I saw the Dove thinking it was a Mourning Dove, and was able to photograph only two photos.
