Streptopelia, sp. (risoria?)

Montrose Point, Lincoln Park, Chicago
Cook County, IL
25 July 2007

This dove, looking like a pale African Collared-Dove without the collar, was at Montrose Point near the water seep. This bird may have been present for a few weeks before these photos were taken.

Here is a view of the underparts, followed by a close-up on the underside of the tail.


These photos were taken with a Nikon Coolpix 4500 camera, the first and third shot through a pair of Bausch and Lomb Elite binoculars.
