Aged by wing covert pattern: pale area near each feather tip, and very weak (or no?) dark scaling.

Observation details

*Very rare; just a few previous Belize records. Saw a long tailed tan colored dove on the wire as I was driving by, and initially suspected Mourning Dove. Turned around to get a better look and quickly snapped a few photos before it flew off. Bird was smaller and paler than Morning Dove, with less pointed tail; showed bold rufous flash in primaries in flight. Location just west of Running W Butcher Shop, mp 63.
