The white winged dove builds a stick nest in a tree and typically lays (2) unmarked eggs in 18 hour intervals. The white-wing dove chicks hatch in only 14 days and can fly 10 days later. White Wing Dove can live to be 15 years old, and are rapidly expanding outside of the native migratory range now into Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
