Eurasian Collared Dove

Streptopelia decaocto

Summary 4

Eurasian Collared Doves are rarely seen in the Arboretum, but they are common in the urban areas around the sanctuary (like the intersection of 610 and Woodway). These exotic birds resemble Mourning Doves, but larger and with a black half-collar on their necks. They make a distinctive "coo-COO-coo" call.
