White-tipped Dove

Leptotila verreauxi ORDER: COLUMBIFORMES FAMILY: COLUMBIDAE

IUCN Conservation Status: Least Concern

A secretive bird of the Neotropics, the White-tipped Dove reaches the northern edge of its range in southern Texas. It spends most of its time foraging inconspicuously on the ground, occasionally bursting into the air with noisy wingbeats and distinctive flashes of chestnut color under the wings.

Song a long, low cooing, similar to the sound made from blowing across the top of a bottle. Wings make a high whirr upon takeoff.
