Eurasian Collard Doves
A native species of Asia and Europe recently introduced to North America. First imported to the Bahamas in the 1980s and making their way to Florida soon there after, Eurasian Collard Doves have spread all over N.America Like with the European Starling, Baja Sur resisted these invaders until just recently. Some say they occupy a habitat niche not used by other doves (wherever that could be) but like the Starlings, it seems they are here to stay.
