Inca Dove

I spent last weekend in Mexico City, but had very little time for birding. Fortunately, there are a few species there, such as the Inca Dove, that seem to be thriving in the world's largest city. These small doves (about 8 inches long compared to our familiar Mourning Dove at 12 inches) are seen everywhere, even searching for tidbits on busy sidewalks. I suppose they must be calling (or "coo-ing") regularly, too, but their voice is usually drowned out by the almost constant noise of traffic.
