WHITE-TIPPED DOVE, BLUE WATERS INN, SPEYSIDE, TOBAGO, TRINIDAD & TOBAGO

   We can ID this dove as a White-tipped Dove by its blue eye-ring,  yellow iris, red legs, black bill, brown upperparts and wings, whitish underparts, white forehead and rufous underwing coverts.  It should be noted that the eye-ring is typically red in most of the White-tipped Dove's range, but is blue in most of the Amazon, Northern South America and Trinidad & Tobago. 
   The White-tipped Dove is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 591.
