Collared Doves are much smaller than the pigeons, with a longer, narrower tail and pinky-buff plumage. They are easily told from Turtle Doves by their plain upperparts and neat black line around the back of the neck.

This Dove came to get some food of a just installed feeder.... My new Tokina lens was ready for a tryout.....

Bedankt Adrie,
Wat deze lens kan verbaasde mij ook een beetje!
Hij is te vergelijken met de 50-200 van Zuiko .
Zeker een goede lens ....

Thanks for the comment Shelley.
I was surprised by the colour off the Dove also.
When I saw this picture on my PC, I notice more colour than the grey like colour when they are flying by.
I put that feeder up a few days ago and decorated it with some cedar branches.
Now it looks different again because I didn't like the way it showed up on the picture.
Waiting for new birds to show up so I can make some more pictures....

Happy Holiday's and regards,
