Eurasian Collared-Dove!

It apparently is something of a newcomer to Welder, since it isn’t listed at all in the checklist, but I’m pretty sure these shots that were taken this afternoon are of a Eurasian Collared-Dove. We have a lot of them in my neighborhood, and these shots show the distinguishing field marks (like the dark primaries) really well.

Here’s a shot by avatar99:

I know it’s an exotic (we don’t get to count them “officially” in the local Santa Barbara County list, even though they’re all over the place), but it’s still a new species for the birdcam, which makes me happy. 🙂
