While many species of dove live in Florida, the mourning dove (Zenaida macroura) is the only dove species native to the state.

Many dove species that reside in Florida, while not native, are state and federally protected, including the common ground dove (Zenaida passerina), Inca dove (Columbina inca), Key West quail-dove (Geotrygon chrysie), ruddy quail-dove (Geotrygon Montana), scaly-naped pigeon (Columba squamosa), white-winged dove (Zenaida asiatica), white-crowned pigeon (Columbina leucocephala) and Zenaida dove (Zenaida aurita). There are also other species of dove residing in Florida that are not protected and considered exotics in the United States; examples include the diamond dove (Geopelia cuneate), ringed turtle dove (Streptopelia risoria), rock dove or common pigeon (Columba livia), and Eurasian collared or ring-necked dove (Streptopelia decaocto).

Mourning doves can be found throughout southern Canada, all of the U.S. and Central America, and most of the Caribbean Islands. Found throughout Florida, the greatest numbers of mourning doves appear to be in the central portion of the state. Florida populations increase during the winter months, when the resident population is supplemented by birds migrating in from the north.

Historically, mourning doves inhabited open forests and edges between forest and prairie, avoiding deep woods and extensive forest tracts. However, doves are very adaptable and now are found in a variety of habitats, including agricultural, suburban, and urban areas.

I found this one in my backyard and was able to get this portrait shot. Polk County, Florida.
