Bird-Watching: Caribbean Dove

 

 

The Caribbean Dove is a typical member of the genus Leptotila, being primarily found on the ground, usually in semiarid habitats, foraging alone or in loose pairs, and searching for fruits and apparently also small snails. Four subspecies of the locally common Caribbean Dove are recognized, and these variously inhabit the Yucatán Peninsula and several adjacent offshore islands belonging to Mexico, Belize and Honduras; the Caymans; Jamaica; and the Colombian-owned island of San Andrés which lies off the Nicaraguan coast.
