    We have Eurasian Collared doves, also known as "ring necks" and although they are considered an invasive species, we still like them. Who wouldn't like something as lovable looking as this?

    I agree Jane and love to see them visiting my garden. I just wish the Wood Pigeons would find somewhere else to go!!

    I get mourning doves at my property, mooching off the chicken food. Very sweet, but I have to admit I have a softer spot for the ravens.
