Eurasian Collared Dove
- I had a pair of Eurasian Collared Doves hanging around under my seed
feeder in SE Potter last week. One of them has been back every day
this week. I think it is the same one since it has white feathers
showing on the top of its left wing (scapular? covert?); I won't know
until I get them both at the same time .
George said they were coming and here they are.
I also had an unusually high 24 hour rainfall total ending this
morning at 0730 of exactly 3".
- I have been subliminally aware for the last several months that my neighborhood has been doing without the unpleasant call of the Eurasian Collared Dove.
They have come back in the past few days with perhaps four individuals nearby.
I think they may have displaced/replaced the much more melodious Mourning Doves.
