Zenaida Dove (Pea Dove, Big Dove)

Length 25-28cm (10-11″). Increasingly uncommon breeding resident in the Cayman Islands. Currently under pressure from natural habitat loss and aggressive colonisation of urban habitat by the similar White-winged Dove. Prefers coastal woodland and shrubland, mixed woodland and buttonwood swamps. Also to be seen in urban areas. Not to be confused with White-winged Dove.
