Zenaida DoveZenaida aurita
Very similar in appearance to the closely related and much more common Mourning Dove (Zenaida macroura). This species is slightly smaller than a Mourning Dove (11-12”, 28-30 cm). The Zenaida Dove is slightly darker and redder than a Mourning Dove, has a shorter, more rounded tail, and its wings have a white trailing edge in flight, which the Mourning Dove does not. Zenaida Dove lacks gray on nape of neck that Mourning Dove has.
