Friday Feeder Friend
Eurasian collared dove. This bird was new to me, but the species is apparently spreading throughout the continental US at a very fast pace. Steve and I were discussing them a few weeks back, and he said that these doves had gone from absent to the most common bird in Magdalena in the space of ten years. Accustomed as I am to mourning doves, these guys make a very undove-like squawk at times.
