Dove ~ Nature Tuesday

Sharing a photo I took at the state park. I spotted two Eurasian Collared Doves in one of the top limbs of a park tree. I snapped this photo with my phone. Could not get any closer as I could not climb the tree. They are the same type I get in my yard and deck. And since the park is only a few miles from my home, I am not surprised they are the same species.

Love seeing these big doves anywhere. I just recently started seeing this species. Usually I only have the mourning dove, which is one of my favorites for their sound. Over the winter I saw these doves for the first time at my deck feeder and what, at first, looked like white doves. But they are a light gray with a black band around their neck. A lot bigger than the mourning dove as well. I was so excited to welcome them to my yard. So that is why I quickly could identify them in the park.

Nature is never ending on what it has to offer all of us.  Just look around.
