Nature Walk: Eurasian Collared Dove
“Before human settlement, wildlife species were rarely found beyond their place of evolutionary origin. Through time humans have moved plants, insects and animals to other continents around the world, known as exotic species in their new countries. Some do not survive and gradually disappear; however, others multiply due to a lack of natural controls to become serious pests competing with native inhabitants. The Eurasian Collared Dove is one example that has become naturalized across much of the U.S. and is generally found in towns and cities.” – Carl Kurtz
