Eurasian collared doves are periodically spotted in the Puget Sound region.  I recall past discussions on Tweeters about their presence in our area.  According to my (old) Sibley's, the species was introduced from Europe and is rapidly colonizing North America.  Bill Anderson; Edmonds, WA. USA

Has anyone else seen this species in the area?
