I live in Volusia County, central Florida. Late this afternoon I saw what I at first glance thought was a mourning dove perched quietly on the top tier of my birdbath in the backyard. As I looked more closely, I realized that although the bird was dove-shaped, it was smaller and sleeker (slimmer) than a mourning dove. It was also buff in body color, but with a decidedly orangeish/red, sharp, pointed beak. When it preaned and extended its wings, a beautiful pink/coral color was revealed in the feathers under the wing. Its feet were yellow.
I have been unable to identify this bird using any of my North American bird guides. Can anyone help?
