Collared Doves

One of the more common visitors to my garden and feeding station is the Collared Dove. Initially we had a pair but eventually I think they brought one of their chicks as frequently there were three. They all got on very well together. The most I have had in the garden has been ten. It was comical at times as they all tried to get onto the bird table at the same time. The most that managed to get on was seven, all crammed together trying to feed. Unfortunately that day my camera battery was flat and I couldn’t record the scene. There hasn’t been that many since but I live in hope. Here’s a pic of one flying onto the bird table.
