The distinctly red eye, and the fringe of white on the wing feathers, leads me to suggest that this bird is a White-winged Dove instead of a Mourning Dove. Perhaps there was more evidence at the scene for you to make your ID, or maybe the white wing edge is somehow illusory?

Thanks. I looked at another picture I had and the white edge of the wing was more evident in it.
