Eurasian Collared-Dove

Late this afternoon, on a sunny, mild spring day, I heard the cooing calls of a Eurasian Collared-Dove – hoo-HOOO-hoo, with the last hoo very short. The calls came from beyond the treeline of a wooded area behind a yard, much too far away to see the birds, but the calls were distinct.

I have seen and heard Eurasian Collared-Doves in and near our neighborhood only now and then, on isolated occasions. These calls came from well beyond the neighborhood, in the direction of a much more developed area.
