White-winged Dove

All of my Ohio friends seem to have Mountain Bluebird fever, and I'll have to content myself with 80 degree weather and White-winged Doves coming to the feeder in Houston Texas.
This dove would be a rarity for Ohio, and I bird I have been hoping to add to my Ohio list for years now. At least I have had good opportunities to study the boys in the backyard, which will eliminate doubts if I do see one in the Buckeye state.
One reason people are compelled to list: an easy find in one state, becomes a record find in another. So train your eyes for the white "sidewalls" on this specimen, and let's watch the telephone wires in Ohio for one of these distinctive doves.
