I did not feed the birds last winter because every time I put out food there would be a huge flock of starlings come and just inhaled the food I put out.
I decided it was more fun to watch them than to watch nothing.
Yesterday I saw something fly past the front room window to land in the front yard...I jumped up and ran to see and it was one of these Eurasion Collared Doves. Or I thought it was...but it flew so quickly I was not sure.
Today they came back...they are definitely bigger than our Mourning Doves. I don't know if all act like these did, but they hardly paused to even eat. It was hard to get a decent pic of them. There was a third one...but there seemed to be bickering going on between it and these other.
