This is a great shot of this one! Nice job! These guys are taking over around here. Our mourning dove population is dwindling. There were just 3-4 a couple of years ago. Now, I see 20 under the feeders everyday. Congrats on this great shot!

Thanks for the info, I wonder what changed to spark their expansion. Under UK conditions I have seen them breed in every month of the year as long as sufficient food is available.

Thanks Peter.
I guess more accurate would be Eurasian Collared Dove.

From wikipedia...
The Collared Dove was introduced into the Bahamas in the 1970s and spread from there to Florida by 1982. It has become invasive;[8] the stronghold in North America is still the Gulf Coast, but it is now found as far south as Veracruz, as far west as California, and as far north as Alaska, the Great Lakes, and Nova Scotia.

How the heck did they get to the US? they arrived in the UK in the 1960's under their own steam. They originated in the deserts of the middle east or North Africa, there they were only a small population, then suddenly they began to spread North and West to colonise the whole of Europe.

Thank you Wanda.
I believe it is an Asian Collared Dove.
We get similar looking migratory pigeons in th Pacific North West.

I Initially said I don't comment much but I found myself commenting a lot. I was never happy with just saying "Nice shot" "Very nice" "Great shot" etc so I decided to leave the comments to the pros. You all say it so much better. Thank you all for your kind comments and I will continue to view and rate and occasionally add my 2 cents.Mark
