White-winged Dove, surprise in NH!!

There's a White-winged Dove being seen at bird feeders near an industrial park in Concord, NH! Usually found in the Southwest and Southeast this Mourning Dove look-alike can be told by the white edge of its folded wings. In the Southwest it is a resident of arid areas, while in the Gulf states it is common in landscaped suburbs and parklands and regularly visits bird feeders. So even if you are not in those areas, check closely your Mourning Doves, one could turn out to be a White-winged Dove! (photo from another time)
