Eurasain Collared Dove

The species has been expanding its range almost exponentially over the past decade, but this year in particular they have exploded on southern Vancouver Island. For the past few years I used to see one or two every few weeks; now I am seeing them daily and in locations where I had not previously seen them. In Brentwood Bay I saw five together - possibly a family group given the time of year. It will be interesting to see how this invasive species will contribute to the balance of things.
