White-tipped Dove

Elsewhere I have posted notes on White-tipped Doves that Erika and I photographed in southern Texas. The species is also found south to South America. The dove in this picture in the undergrowth in the campus of the Hotel de Campo in northern Costa Rica on 11 July 2017.

Despite being common across their wide range, this dove is little studied by ornithologists. This lack is particularly troubling since it is an important game bird in many countries (Hogan 1999).
