Note: This bird is at a private residence .
Right at 11 AM the White-winged Dove showed up in the lower branches of a large maple tree about 20 feet from the deck. Of course the bird posed with its perch obstructing the prominent diagnostic white leading wing edge.
After a few minutes the bird flew to a higher vantage point which exposed the white on the wings however the bright background sky made for some drab photos.
Twenty minutes later it flew down to a lower branch with provided both an unobstructed view and a better background.
