White-winged Dove at Anza-Borrego

White-winged Dove. Anza-Borrego desert, California. April 27, 2014. Greg Gillson.
Back in January I photographed a White-winged Dove nearby in Borrego Springs. This one above was at the Visitor Center at the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park 3 weeks ago.

The cooing of this species reminds me very much of the hooting of Barred Owl! "Who cooks for you?" Listen here, and see if you don't agree. (Barred Owl for comparison.)
