These are becoming common here, and I have some photos of Inca doves that I took with my Olympus C-700. I was hoping to see them again this year.

Very nice...

(Dove "couples" seem to be uncommonly "close" if this forum member may be allowed to anthropomorphize (sp? .

Two doves who make frequent appearances on my land are always within a few feet of each other.)

Peaceful photo.

These look identical to a pair of what we call "Collared Doves" in Britain, which sit in the hawthorn tree at the bottom of my garden. Good picture.

According to my book "Birds of North America" it is the Eurasian Collared-Dove which as introduced into the Bahama Islands in 1974. By the end of the the 1970s, it was in Florida. It has now spread as far west as Texas and north to Tennessee.

I meant to add that the locals here in Louisiana mostly call them 'Ring-Neck' doves.
