I noted that Dawn Harris just reported a Yaquina Bay CBC record 148 Eurasian Collared Doves. This species has been absent at my house near Eckman Lake in Waldport for more than two years but about 10 days ago 1 appeared at our feeder. This morning the number has increased to 8 and there's lots of courtship going on.
I hope the sharp-shinned hawk that pinned a chickadee against our bay window recently is still around and take notice of the doves.
