Eurasian Dove ~ Backyard Birds

Another backyard bird to share. This Eurasian collared dove visits the deck and bird bath frequently. He is larger than the mourning doves. Very striking to see them, almost white, flying from tree to tree.

This is one of the few birds that can drink water without having to stop to let the water go down their throat. Their beaks allow them to drink water as if they were drinking with a straw. It is amazing to watch them at the bird bath.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

    • Eurasian Collared-Doves are sometimes confused with descendants of domesticated African Collared-Doves (Streptopelia roseogrisea). This dove is a common caged bird (often called a“ringed turtle-dove”) that is rarely seen in the wild in North America.
