Pale-vented Pigeon

Patagioenas cayennensis


Its a large pigeon found in the tropical American.


The Pale-vented Pigeon is common at forest edges, riverbanks, and other partially open areas with some trees. It feeds mainly on small fruits, berries and seed. This is a fairly solitary bird, but may form small flocks at drinking areas.


Doves(?) having fun under the rain this afternoon.

It's a Pigeon of the genus Patagioenas, it's extremely hard to tell from these photos since the birds aren't portraying typical plumage, but I highly suspect Pale-vented Pigeon, Patagioenas cayennensis, based on the seemingly light-colored underparts.
