Billy and I have always loved the doves in our yard. We’ve had many Mourning Doves ever since we moved into this house, and quite a few Eurasian Collared Doves in the last few years. About a year ago, however, we realized that we had a new type of dove making periodic visits to our yard: Inca Doves. We were a bit confused at first, as when we first looked them up, the information we found said that they didn’t live in our part of the country. But they just keep coming back, and we’ve seen reports of them from others in our area as well (Steve Creek Inca Dove post). They are beautiful birds…their feathers almost look like chain mail armor…and smaller than the Mourning Dove or Eurasian Collared Dove. We love having them visit!
Linking up with Wild Bird Wednesday!
