Eurasian Collared Dove 4" x 4" acrylic $225
Happy New Year!
My first post of 2011 is of a Eurasian Collared-Dove a relatively new species to North America. They were first introduced in the Bahamas and have since been spreading throughout the United States. There is now a permanent population in the Willamette Valley in Oregon. I saw this particular bird in my neighborhood. They are larger than mourning doves but still have the classic dove shape. The dark ring on it's neck is where the bird derives it's name.
