Been a while and the site looks different, in a good way. On honeymoon in US Virgin Islands (St. John). Since this is my first trip to the Caribbean, there are lots of lifers, most of which were easy to ID. This is a Quail-Dove, but it looked different than the Bridled Quail-Doves I also saw. Looks a bit like a Ruddy Quail-Dove, but that would be a pretty unusual bird, as I understand it. Thoughts?

Can't seem to upload image so hopefully this works.

Welcome back, JAC66. I think the white mark is too demarcated to be a Ruddy Quail-dove, from what I can gather through online images.
