whitewing dove

By jdh2
Nothing special about this bird but they are very common in central Texas. It is commonly known as a whitewing dove. They are a very docile bird which will feed alongside almost any other bird. They usually eat from the ground, but will also eat from a feeder. It is not uncommon to see 20 to 30 at a time. They are hunted during the season (not by me) I only photograph. I took this in my back yard with Nikon D-300, 18-200 vr, 1/500, f/8-no alterations
