Is this a Eurasian collared dove, Andy? They are a recent arrival in Arizona and they're concerned about the native dove populations being affected - mourning doves and whitewings. It's a beautiful shot.

Thanks Ruth. It is indeed...it's closely related to the mourning dove, in fact, it looks very similar don't you think? Hopefully they will all live in harmony and not compete for food.
