Eurasian Collared-Dove

It's getting more and more common to see Eurasian Collared-Doves on the way to Fernhill Wetlands, usually fairly nearby. They are typically perched on a power line and appear a little larger and paler than Morning Doves. Interestingly, they seem to be quite tolerant of me stopping and taking their picture. Most birds will fly as soon as they see you pulling over to get a closer look, but these Doves usually sit there for quite a while without being spooked.
