RODRIGUEZ-RUIZ, Erick Rubén; PUENTE-GARCIA, César  and  MORENO-VALDEZ, Arnulfo. Record of aging in the White-winged Dove (Zenaida asiatica) in Tamaulipas, Mexico. Huitzil [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.2, e541. ISSN 1870-7459.

The incidence of pigmentary disorders in Mexican birds has been poorly documented. We report an individual of White-winged dove (Zenaida asiatica) with atypical pigmentation in Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas. Some possible physical factors that can produce this pigmentary abnormality are discussed.

Keywords : columbiformes; gray-haired; progressive aging; vitiligo; leucism; albinism.
