collared Dove

Easily identified by its fawn colouration with brown flight feathers, it has a narrow black collar around the nape but which is absent in juvenile birds. The Collared Dove has only been breeding in Britain since 1955 where it had spread its range from the Balkans. It can now be found throughout the country except in very hilly areas and is especially associated with gardens in towns and villages.

Like the Woodpigeon it will often associate with Feral Pigeons exploiting agricultural crops and human food scraps. Bill’s Really Wild Bird Food recipe is ideal as are any of the bird food recipes that contain split grain and smaller seeds as, they are eagerly taken if spread on the ground (Collared Doves will also feed from an open-topped bird table).
