While in Nicaragua I saw plenty of these pretty little doves. Each morning I would wake up to their beautiful cooing sounds which reminded me somewhat of our mourning doves here in Ohio.

Whether in the city, suburbs, country or forest you could always count on viewing these lovely birds. You didn't even have to see the birds, you could tell just by the whistling sound of their wings overhead that they were in the area.

White-winged doves feed heavily on grain which unfortunately makes them the enemies of many farmers. They gather in huge flocks while traveling back and forth between roosting areas and feeding sites.

Hello Ron,
Beautiful eye of this White winged Dove. Well captured in its natural habitat. Well focus on its eye. I like bluish touch in its eye. Nice light and POV. Beautiful dove.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Ron,

The branch is helping to frame the bird. The point of view is showing the details of the White-winged Dove. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
