Baby Mourning dove

Zenaida macroura


I saw this bird at the base of some trees on a path at the zoo. He was pretty small, and didn't seem too bothered by me. I thought he might be a baby dove, but wasn't sure. I almost told the zookeepers about him, cuz I was kind of worried.

I googled both, and his markings look more like a mourning dove. Thanks to you both!

Thanks, Mitch. He was a cute little guy.
