Bigger Ohio Dove or Predator?
Have had doves as pets before, and... in morning doves in the yard as 'wild animals'. Saw this bird today, clearly, just for a split-second after flying into a pine tree about 15 yards up and away then past me over the house.
A small dog has always been a concern of mine in the country with coyotes, owls, etc. And I was wondering what type of bird this might be. It flew like a predator bird, not quite like a dove would, with more power, and distiction. But, it looked like a dove just 2-3x the size, and dirtier brown but still with a lighter maybe dirty beige color head. The tail was lighter in color also.
The head and beak seemed dove-like, the beak was slightly curved but not overly, and like I said, it just seemed like a overly, overly big, possessed, dove, and it didn't quite seem like a hawk either.
The body/feathers seemed sleek, like a doves.
What could this bird be?
