Description

note the purplish-red orbital skin which is one of the characters which separates this species from White-tipped Dove which I am also posting. Gray-chested is also darker in overall plumage, especially the breast area.

Now more than 48 hours of continuous rain. Sure wish we could get some of this in Texas! I sit on the covered deck here or at another nearby location and take photos of wet birds or look for moths on the wall.

Description from Wikipedia

Pigeons and doves constitute the bird clade Columbidae, that includes some 310 species. They are stout-bodied birds with short necks, and have short, slender bills with fleshy ceres. Doves feed on seeds, fruits, and plants. This family occurs worldwide, but the greatest variety is in the Indomalaya and Australasia ecozones.
