Abstract

We provide an analysis of apparent survival for Inca Dove (Columbina inca) in Galveston, Texas. We aged and banded 24 hatch-year and 103 after-hatch-year doves during 1980–1990. Our analysis provided evidence for effects of body mass on survival. Inca Dove had lower probabilities of apparent annual survival (0.35, SE = 0.04) relative to estimates we found for other species within Columbidae. The annual probability of recapture was 0.87 ± 0.07. Our study's geographic inference space is limited, but our results may provide context for the current expansion of Inca Dove to the north.
