Columbina talpacoti rufipennis (Ruddy Ground Dove / Tortolita)

The Ruddy Ground Dove (Columbina talpacoti rufipennis) is a small New World tropical dove. It is found from S.E. Mexico to Colombia and Venezuela. Adult males have a pale grey head and neck, and rich rufous upperparts, black-spotted on the wing coverts. The female is grey-brown rather than rufous, and has less contrast between head and body than the male.
