White-winged Dove and Tree Sparrows(Winter Sparrows)

December 02, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Migration is four to six weeks late this year. Finally, on December 1, we had our first Tree Sparrows arrive at our place.

A special visitor this morning was a White-winged Dove. Check the white wing, the black primaries, lack of spots on the body, large bill, blue orbital ring and orange-red iris. I was forced to photograph the bird through two doors, hand held with slow shutter speeds but a few of the photos are respectable. I hope to do much better since I doubt the bird will leave anytime soon, but who knows?
