Reproduction by juvenile common ground doves columbina passerina in south texas usa



Wilson Bulletin 96(2): 241-248



Reproductive activity of juvenile common ground doves (C. passerina) was studied in mesquite-brushland habitats in south Texas from 1978-1980. Juveniles were reproductively active near the time they molted their 6th juvenal primary, at .apprx. 79 days of age. Evidence of breeding included enlarged testes, differentiated ovaries, active crop glands and oviductal eggs. The contribution of juvenile breeders to the annual recruitment of the population was estimated to be 15-21%.
