Ruddy ground doves

Columbina talpacoti


Over the course of two weeks we saw the dove chicks shed their awkward downy feathers and turn into miniature versions of their parents. A week after the second photo, they had abandoned the nest and were on their own.


Spotted on farmland. Typical habitat includes scrub and open country, including cultivated land and urban areas.
