The Mourning Dove's scientific name is Zenaida macroura and also has other common names such as the turtle dove. I found this dove in a tree while I was riding my bike back home from the gym around the west side of El Paso, TX. The reason I though it was a Mourning Dove is because of its slim features and brown and grey light colors.
