Identification

Length: 22-25 cm (8½-9¾ ins) in north, some southern birds larger.
The tail looks short, especially on the standing bird. Both upper and undersides have a warm brown color, with a few black spots on the folded wing. The head has a grey crown (brown in female), black line going diagonally down behind the eye, and a second parallel line further down the side of the head. At least on some subspecies, the area behind the eye shows a violet color. The underparts including the undertail coverts are brown, and the tail is tipped with cinnamon in northern populations, white in southern ones; subterminally, there is a black band. The bill is black and the legs dark red.

Distribution

Breeds in South America from Argentina and Chile to Colombia and Venezuela, and in the Caribbean in the Netherlands Antilles and the Lesser Antilles north to St. Lucia and Barbados. Records exist for observations on Martinique and Panama.

Taxonomy

The Eared Dove, Mourning Dove and Socorro Dove are closely related; in the past some authorities have described them as forming a superspecies.
