We monitored nesting home ranges of White-winged Doves (Zenaida asiatica) in Waco, Texas using field-implanted, subcutaneous radio transmitters. Mean nesting home-range size differed by gender (75.7 km2 for females, 31.9 km2 for males, P = 0.17). Mean nesting home-range for all individuals of known gender differed by year (75.6 km2 for 2002, 32.0 km2 for 2003, P < 0.001). Within-year mean nesting home ranges for individuals differed by gender for 2002 but did not for 2003. We received reports of 35 band recoveries (2.3% of those banded) through March 2004. Distance moved did not differ by year, gender for adults, or for gender by age. Distances of recoveries from banding sites ranged from 0 to 477.4 km.
