Zen[aida] dove

As I got to spend some time on an island that was cat and mongoose free it was interesting to note some common birds were slightly less flighty than in non-mammal free environments. Hence I got some nice photos of things like this zenaida dove.

Note that like many birds there it is blinged up on the left leg. This may be the source of some of the ringed birds I've seen over the years here as it isn't too far away and there aren't too many other ringing operations nearby.
