White-winged Dove

About the White-winged Dove

The White-winged Dove is a large species of pigeon native to the southwestern USA and parts of Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. The species is highly adaptable and has been extending its range.

White-winged Doves are named for a patch of white feathers which are seen when the bird is at rest or in flight. Their drab, unmarked bodies contrast with their rather colorful faces. Males and females look alike.
