This is the first year that I have seen 3 different types of Doves (Eurasian-Collared Dove, Mourning Dove and Inca Dove) showing up at my backyard feeder at the same time. I have been trying to get a photo of them all together but no luck yet.

    Very cool, those Inca Doves are sharp looking birds!

  2. Steve says:

    Nice comparison!! and great shots.

    Thanks Nathan and Steve! It has been a great surprise seeing the Inca Dove here in my part of Arkansas.

  4. Inca is beautiful, although I’m also very fond of Mourning doves, common as they are. Not sure I’ve seen the Eurasian. If I have, in my ignorance, I may have just assumed it was an unusual Mourning dove. Have to pay better attention!

    I agree with Steve on the nice comparison. I love that Inca dove. The feather pattern is incredible.

  6. I think doves are so beautiful. These are wonderful images.

    I love the mourning dove, they are so gentle and comforting, but I have to say that Inca Dove is incredible, I’ve seen them sculpted in stone & your pic shows they are real, not just an artists take on a dove. The feather pattern look like armor plating.

    Wonderful images of all 3 species!! I’ll need to watch for the Inca Dove. We have lots of the other 2 species…very beautiful, sweet birds.

    Took these pictures today in Arizona, seen a lot of doves but don’t think I ever seen these before. Took pictures out of the truck window. Looks like Eurasian Collard doves.

    Pakrat, that link didn’t work for me but I was able to see your photos after digging a little deeper on your site. Those do look like Eurasian’s to me.
