Columbina talpacoti rufipennis (Ruddy Ground Dove / Tortolita)

La Ceja, Colombia

 

The Eared Dove is a resident breeder throughout South America from Colombia to southern Argentina. It is a close relative of the North American Mourning Dove. 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.
