Birds - Eurasian Collared Dove
Class:Aves Order:Columbiformes Family:Columbidae


Also called the Collared Dove, this is a newer additin to North America. Identified from its more common cousin the Mourning Dove by its black collar on the back of its neck. These large doves sound like owls. You learn this forever after you follow the sound in the woods and sadly discover a giant dove in the tree where your owl was supposed to be.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
