A few mornings while looking for wildlife, I saw this somewhat large pigeon from afar. When I say large, it looked to be over a foot long from beak to tail.
It never let me get even remotely close, but my camera allowed me to at least identify the species – a white-crowned pigeon.
They can be found on the island of Hispaniola, as well as other surrounding islands. I was glad to spot one during my time in the DR.
