Common Ground Dove vs ??


Recommended Posts

24 Aug 2020 Baldwin co. AL

So today I followed the call I have been ascribing to a Common Ground Dove and flushed this little guy from a small pine.  He flew a short distance into another pine entangled by vines, which did a great job of hiding him--this is where I had to photograph him.  There was obvious reddish-brown flashing on the wing surfaces when he flew.  He was tiny--the green leaves are live oak leaves.  He looks more grey (particularly for the southeast?) than the CGDO descriptions I have read in various guides, but he was deep in shadow.
