#365: White-winged Dove

Abita Amber packs a little more of a kick than I remembered, so yesterday after a beer and cheese fries lunch at Cooter Browns I decided to take a stroll around Audubon Park rather driving straight home. Lucky I did because I finally found five White-winged Doves flitting around in one of the Live Oaks near the Audubon Institute.

White-winged Dove, Audubon Park

I’d been looking for these repeatedly in the Uptown streets without any success, despite fairly precise directions as to where they were likely to be found. This is probably the last life bird I’ll pick up this trip and likely this year, unless something really weird shows up in Prospect Park this weekend.

Other birds seen yesterday in Audubon Park included:

  • Black-bellied Whistling-Duck
  • Graylag Goose
  • Mute Swan
  • Muscovy Duck
  • Wood Duck
  • Mallard
