If there was one bird that seemed extremely plentiful in Nicaragua, it was the White-winged Dove. It didn't matter if I was in the capital city of Managua, the heavily forested areas near Granada or along the ocean beach, I saw and heard plenty of these pretty little doves.

I loved waking up each morning to the pleasant cooing sounds of these beautiful birds. I also enjoyed hearing the whistling sounds they make as they fly overhead.

We only have Mourning Doves here in Ohio, so it was a thrill for me just to view these attractive birds with their tanish brown colored plumages and bright orange eyes, complimented by a touch of blue around them.

Hello Ron,
Very beautiful photo of this White-winged Dove in excellent sharpness, clarity and natural colours. Great composition with eye contact.
Enjoy the weekend,

I love that blue circle around the Dove's red eye, Ron, not to mention the white part of its plumage that lends that name to it.
It is a very good looking bird from Nicaragua and thanks for showing us this beautiful picture of it.
Warm regards.
