the seemingly inexorable flood of collared doves continues apace. saw 15
of them on the overhead wires along the highway at the south end of roslyn
in kittitas county around 2pm this MLK day afternoon. they were chatting
so we could confirm the visual id of eurasian by the coo COO cup calls
between them. whether that's as definitive as i contend it is probably
depends at least in part on how willing african and eurasian birds (and
turtle doves, for that matter) are to hybridize and whether that
could/would/does affect vocalizations. my guess is they're probably kinda
trampy, but what do i know?

in any event there's lots of formerly only cage birds out there taking up
space and using up resources.
