An Eared Dove (Zenaida auriculata), a New World tropical dove, at Arquipélago de Fernando de Noronha, Brazil. The Eared Dove is 24 cm long with a long wedge-shaped tail, and weighs normally about 112 grams. Adult males have mainly olive-brown upperpart plumage, with black spots on the wings. The head has a grey crown, black line behind the eye, and the blue-black on the lower ear coverts. These black markings give the species its English and specific name. Source: Wikipedia.
