Inca Dove

The Inca dove is pale sandy gray with feathers that resemble a beautiful scaled pattern. It has a long, squared, tail edged with white feathers. 

It ranges from Costa Rica in the south to the American Southwest on the north. 
This is not a great picture, but it does give a better color reference.
We saw them in Mexico City as we walked from our hotel to Chapultepec Park and I was quite taken with them. They are very small, but so distinctively beautiful.

  1. The dark outline of each feather is really pretty.
