Common Ground-Dove (Columbina passerina)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Common Ground-Dove (Columbina passerina)

Smaller than a mourning dove, they have an orange-colored bill with a black tip and when they take flight, you can see the underside of the wings is pinkish. The most distinguishing characteristic would be the scales on the neck.
