Collared dove

Easily over-looked as a pigeon, the collared dove is its own species, slightly smaller and more timid than the feral pigeon. Collared doves nest most of the year and can produce four or five broods, often in conifers.yews or deciduous trees covered in ivy.


The bird's marking vary for each individual but all have the thin narrow strip of black below the neck. From the woodland glen in the Pleasaunce, they can be seen in the playing fields, either on the grass or on posts.
