Florida Ground Dove

ground doves

I've been watching this little family of ground doves for a few weeks now. They have taken up residence under my bird feeder. Ground Doves are rarely seen in Florida now due to habitat destruction.

Unlike the more prevalent Mourning Dove, the Ground Dove is much smaller and has a shorter tail. I hope they stay around, they are very cute and seem to stick together in tight knit family groups.
