There are three most popular doves to hunt are Mourning dove, White-winged Dove, and Eurasian Collared dove. The Mourning Dove is the most hunted dove across North America. It is a graceful bird with a small head and slender body. White-winged Dove brown overall, with a dark line on the cheek. A white stripe at the edge of the folded wing becomes, as the bird takes flight, a bright flash in the middle of a dark wing. The tail is tipped in white and set off with black stripes from the gray underside. Eurasian Collared-Dove is chalky light brown to gray-buff birds with broad white patches in the tail. The bird’s collar is a narrow black crescent around the nape. In-flight and when perched, the wingtips are darker than the rest of the wing.
