New bird in my flock of morning doves.

Looks like a cross between a pigeon and a dove. Showed up this AM while I was feeding the morning doves that come everyday, it was about 50% bigger then the doves.

Looks like a Eurasian Collared-dove.  Just some friendly advice: make sure to include your location when asking for IDs.

Looks good for Eurasian Collared-Dove. They make some pretty unique noises sometimes. A lot more pushy than the Mourning Doves, also.

Welcome to Whatbird!

 

Just a note: in the title, it's supposed to be Mourning Dove, not Morning Dove. ;)

 

I guess their calls sound sort-of mourning, which is probably why they called them that.

Saw the thread's title, and knew immediately what the bird was going to be. To give you a little background Smitty. Read this link above and you will know why these birds are not a welcomed sight.
