Medium size Dove. Red eye,black beak. Small black half collar. Plumage is White under with pale gray,pale lavender tint wings. Black tips or black flight feathers.
Trees near the bay. On the beach.
I spotted this bird well hidden in a tree. It was one of a pair frequenting the beach, mostly staying in rocky areas and driftwood or near the beach in evergreen trees. I did hear this bird making a Coo sound. This bird has red eyes and a pale lavender tint on the gray plumage. A black half collar is visible. I thought the pair to be Doves or Collared Doves of some type.
