I am writing to you as list owner because I'm not sure this is appropriate for posting by a nonmember of the list.
Yesterday I was traveling through Maryland to return to my home in New York state. I knew Havre de Grace was a charismatic town so left I-95 in search of of a place with a water view where we could picnic. In the space of 20 minutes at Craig Park I twice saw at least one large plump dove flying by and flashing white **seemingly** on its flank. I am an experienced observer but could not claim that this was anything more than a POSSIBLE white-winged dove. I just didn't see enough for long enough to make a positive ID. My goal in writing is to encourage nearby birders to pop by. It is an e-bird site and there is no record for this species.
