Genus Zenaida

White-winged Dove - The White-winged Dove is expanding outside of its historic range into Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and northern New Mexico. Unlike most of the White-winged Doves in Texas, the doves in these regions do not migrate in winter.

Eared Dove - It is a close relative of the North American Mourning Dove. With that species, the Socorro Dove, and possibly the Galápagos Dove it forms a superspecies. The latter two are insular offshoots, the Socorro birds from ancestral Mourning Doves, the Galápagos ones from more ancient stock.

Zenaida dove - The bird is resident and abundant over much of its range. Zenaida Doves are commonly hunted as a game bird. The Zenaida Dove is approximately 28–30 centimetres in length. It looks very similar to the Mourning Dove, but is smaller in size, has a shorter, more rounded tail, and is a bit more darkly colored. It is also distinguished from the Mourning Dove by showing white on the trailing edge of its wings in while in flight. The Mourning Dove does not have the white trailing edge.

Galapagos Dove - Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests and subtropical or tropical dry shrubland.

Socorro Dove - The Socorro Dove is a dove that is extinct in the wild. It was endemic to Socorro Island in the Revillagigedo Islands; the last sighting in its natural habitat was in 1972. There are not more than some 200 and probably fewer than 100 purebred birds in captivity. A reintroduction program is in the early stages of preparation.

Mourning Dove - The Mourning Dove is a member of the dove family . The bird is also called the Western Turtle Dove or the American Mourning Dove or Rain Dove, and formerly was known as the Carolina Pigeon or Carolina Turtledove. It is one of the most abundant and widespread of all North American birds. It is also the leading gamebird, with up to 70 million birds shot annually in the US.


West peruvian dove - It is closely related to the North American White-winged Dove , but is now considered a separate species by ornithologists due to genetic and behavioral differences . Specimens are brownish-gray above and gray below, with a bold white wing patch that appears as a brilliant white crescent in flight and is also visible at rest. Adults have a bright blue , featherless patch of skin around each eye. The legs and feet of adults are red, but unlike Z. asiatica, their eyes are brown.
