The Spotted Dove is becoming harder and harder to find in California as their population continues to decrease. However, Newell Street in Huntington Park, Los Angeles is supposed to be a good spot to find them. As we battled stop and go (mostly stop) traffic, we drove further and further into the ghetto. When we got to the street, things were getting pretty shady and it didn’t seem like getting out of the car was a good idea. Luckily, a Spotted Dove was wandering around a front yard. It then flew into a tree where I quickly photographed it and got the heck out of there.
