  12. Very nice and how lucky are you to have it come into your yard - we sometimes have doves come but later in the year.

  14. Great close-ups Bob. Collared Doves are easily spooked from our garden - usually by the Woodies.

  16. Lovely Collared Dove Bob. We don't get them in our garden as I think we're too rural for them!
