Colombigallina passerina


Check out this video of a Common Ground-Dove on a nest from Fontein Cave, Arikok National Park, Aruba in November 2011.

A tiny, tan-colored dove with chestnut primaries and scaly-looking head and neck. These birds are commonly seen scooting around the plantings of hotels grounds and in the parking lots of Oranjestad.
