Once again it is time to share photos of birds we have had to opportunity to capture “on film”. Stewart M. is kind enough to host Wild Bird Wednesday. You will be delighted to see all the wonderful photos of birds from across the world.
So many that contribute to this site are such great ‘birders’. I never looked closely enough other than just to enjoy the birds to appreciate all the subtle differences. Recently I identified a dove incorrectly. The dove was not a mourning dove but a white winged dove! The past few days this bird has been joining the others at the feeder. Much more skittish than the doves, I have only been able to grab a few very unclear shots.
Studying googling Searching the internet has taught me that pigeons and doves are cousins per some sites, the same on other. So is this bird a pigeon or dove? One site had a similar photo and called it a Ringneck Dove – white mutation (Streptopelia risoria). I find it pretty and quite shy.
