White-winged Dove - Albion - 26 August - AM
- Hi -- Mid-morning, I spotted a juvenile WHITE-WINGED DOVE
in Albion. We motored down to look for the Great-tailed Grackle
(which we did not find, darn). The White-winged Dove was seen
three times by both Jim and myself. I initially got very good looks
at it and noted markings clearly indicating a juvenile (whitish areas
on the forehead and auricular area above a dark gray slash right
below). Tail and wing markings were obvious.
The WWDO was mostly in the vicinity of the Harris Llama Farm
directly across Hwy 1 from the Albion River Inn. It also flew to
several telephone poles and lines just to the south in the same
little neighborhood north of Albion-Little River Airport Rd.
North of Fort Bragg
