Common Ground-Dove
Columbina passerina
(L 6.5" WS 10.5" Wt 1.1 oz)
Ranges from far south U.S.
to north South America.
Edinburgh Scenic Wetlands
From out far depths of the forest.
Ineffably sad and lorn.
Like the yearning cry of a long-lost love.
The moan of the dove was borne.
(James Whitcomb Riley)
