Barbados birds (2) (1 Viewer)

Following on from post #1, I think the really poor photo of the bird in the tree is just about identifiable as Scaly-naped Pigeon from the pale bill.

But I'm struggling to decide if the dove is Zanaida Dove (it lacks the pink on the nape that most photos I can find show), Mourning Dove, or maybe Wood Dove.

Any idea on the maybe-a-pigeon? Know it's a rubbish photo and there's an element of "find the birdie"!

Sorry I am late to the game. I would call the first one a scaly-naped in Barbados given that the reddish on the throat fits and is not usually found on feral pigeon, the only other large pigeon in BB (I am not sure I would tick it based on only this image though). I also agree on Zenaida on #2; eared dove is present but does not show the white in the wing.
