Ruddy Ground-Dove, NM: Bosque del Apache NWR

All photos Copyright (C) 1999 John W. Shipman

This is very rare in New Mexico, and to my knowledge this is the only solid record north of Las Cruces.

The bird is a female. Note the black tail corners. The lack of scalloped texture to the back and underparts separates it from Common Ground-Dove and Inca Dove.

Originals on Kodachrome 200. Nikkor 300mm lens with Nikkor TC-301 2x teleconverter at f/5.6.
