A few days ago, I heard an unusual Dove song in my backyard but could not identify it. This morning I saw what might have been the source…a White-winged Dove. Our yard has been visited by numerous Eurasian Collard-Doves and Mourning Doves; This Dove really stood out with its white coverts, dark malar spot and very dark primaries. Even though the Eurasian and Mourning Doves are ubiquitous, I still look for anything unusual…glad I did!   My yard is on Pa Me Lane in West Bishop
