Streptopelia decaocto

Eurasian Collared-Dove
copyright Herbert Clarke
Length: 13 in. (33 cm)
Introduced from Europe, this dove is expanding its range in North America rapidly. It is almost always associated with human habitation, farms, ranches and feed lots. It forms small flocks and is usually obvious in the open habitats it prefers. The poorly-constructed nest is made up of small twigs and placed in a bush or low tree. The four-digit banding code is ECDO.
