Subject: [GABO-L] Suspected w__w___ dove Burke County
Yesterday afternoon running errands around Waynesboro, I observed a dove
with an outspread white-banded tail. I particularly observed the tail since
that is a distinct feature to identify doves. It flew up from the side of
the road into trees/shrubbery. The tail was on the more rounded than
pointed spectrum. We have mourning doves and Eurasian collared doves
frequently at our feeders; this bird was neither. I couldn't stop at the
time but hope to go back to the area to see if it's still around. Looking
at Sibley 2003, my best guess is that it was a wh___-w____ dove. I'll
definitely be on the look out and ask my birding friends in town carefully
to check out doves they notice.
