Thanks Rasmus.

Since "Birds of Ecuador" shows Plumbeous with a whitish iris and Ruddy with a red iris, I thought it might be relevant to establish which sub-species these illustrations were based on because, presumably, there is a possibility that iris colour changes between sub-species.

As you said earlier, it looks very much as though these birds are Plumbeous Pigeon.

Thanks for all your help.
