This guy (girl?) showed up in my yard today. Tried to get some ID shots showing him from various sides. Seems to get along OK with the normal colored Ringnecks that hang around my yard/feeder, wasn't super cosy with any of them, but they didn't try to chase it off unless it tried to share the feeder, which is typical behaviour right now for them regardless of color, they only share with their mates.

Is my ID correct? I'm hoping he sticks around for a few days, or even longer, would like to get some better shots.

Kadi, these are Eurasian Collared Doves Which are known for leucism and other strange color variations. Beautiful shots.


Regards,
Chuck
