Inca Dove

Inca Dove

The Inca dove (Columbina inca) is small and slender, with coloring that can be a pale grayish brown or brown. It measures between 6½ to 9 inches in length and has a scale-like appearance. The Inca dove is a resident of the Southwest but has been seen venturing northward and has an attraction for urban areas. The Inca dove congregates in pairs and groups, with some sitting on top of others. The Inca dove feeds entirely on the ground and eats grain and seeds. The measurements for the pattern and painting notes were taken from study skins provided by the School of the Life Sciences at Arizona State University, in Tempe, Arizona.
