[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
"The Eurasian Collared Dove (Streptopelia decaocto) most often simply called the Collared Dove,[2][3][4][5] also sometimes hyphenated as Eurasian Collared-dove[6] is a species of dove native to Asia and Europe, and also recently introduced in North America.
It is a medium sized dove, distinctly smaller than the Wood Pigeon, similar in length to a Rock Pigeon but slimmer and longer-tailed, and slightly larger than the related Turtle Dove, 3033 cm long from tip of beak to tip of tail, with a wingspan of 4755 cm, and a weight of 125240 g. It is grey-buff to pinkish-grey overall, a little darker above than below, with a blue-grey under wing patch. The tail feathers are grey-buff above, and dark grey tipped white below; the outer tail feathers also tipped whitish above. It has a black half-collar edged with white on its nape from which it gets its name. The short legs are red and the bill is black. The iris is red, but from a distance the eyes appear to be black, as the pupil is relatively large and only a narrow rim of reddish-brown iris can be seen around the black pupil. The eye is surrounded by a small area of bare skin, which is either white or yellow. The two sexes are virtually indistinguishable; juveniles differ in having a poorly developed collar, and a brown iris."
