White-winged Dove

I'm in Albuquerque, NM this weekend on business. I have meetings on Thursday and Sunday, so I thought I'd take some of the spare time I have and shoot some pictures of the birds in the area.
This morning I visited the Rio Grande Nature Center State Park. I saw some familiar birds and many new ones. There many of these White-winged Doves flying around the park. I dismissed them as Morning Doves at first until I got a closer look. The Doves in the image above were sitting on a feeder at the park along with others. I was busy taking their picture when something spooked them. Suddenly, about 20 Doves all took off at the same time creating quite a commotion.
