In 1974, Eurasian Collared-Doves escaped from captivity in the Bahamas and began to breed in the wild.

Soon, they colonized southern Florida. They began expanding in a northwesterly direction, and by the year 2000, they had arrived in the Pacific Northwest.

They thrive where backyard trees offer nesting and roosting sites. They like to perch on utility poles, and they gladly eat at bird feeders.

The Eurasian Collared-Dove just might be coming soon, to a neighborhood near you!
