A common and conspicuous dove of desert lowlands and foothills, the West Peruvian dove or Pacific dove (Zenaida meloda) is easily identifiable by its violet-blue eyering. It is closely related to the North American white-winged dove (Zenaida asiatica), but is now considered a separate species due to genetic and behavioural differences. Its native range extends along the Pacific coastal plains from southern Ecuador to northern Chile.
It was first described in 1843 by the Swiss naturalist Johann Jakob Baron von Tschudi.
