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.
