White Winged Dove (zenaida asiatica)

Another smart bird which can be shy, this though was most obliging and gave me a nice shot on the rather spikey cactus.

Sabino Canyon, Tucson
Date taken

Scientific name
zenaida asiatica

Super photo and now the database picture for this species.

It always amazes me how they manage to stand on Cacti, it is bad enough when you accidently brush against a plant.
 
Beautiful... and painful! ;) Can't avoid shuddering at the sight of those tender feet on the Cactus! Gorgeous picture, Chris!!! :clap: :clap:
 
That looks painful!
Three super shots.
I bet Tucson isn't the same as Swindon.
