    The last couple of years I have had a different kind of dove hanging around my house near Kouts. These doves are almost twice the size of a morning dove. And they make strange sound. And they have a black ring around there necks. Has anyone else have these around them?

    I wonder if they are good to eat? ;) I thought there was another species of Doves that were/are invasive like the ones in AR where there is no limits? Banded Doves?

    Don't know. They showed up 2 or 3 years ago. There was one setting by a morning dove at the bird feeder it was twice the size of the morning dove.

    Eurasian collared dove. See a few each season and I do not believe they count towards your mourning dove limit. I typically see more around town than our sunflower field.

    They have been around for quite a while now all over the good ol' USofA. Around here, no limit, year around season/ shooting. CPW wants them GONE!
    They eat just like a normal dove, and yes more meat...:tu

    The white wings are expanding East. Up until a couple years ago, if you shot a white wing in SE LA, you would have had it mounted. Now every field will kill a few opening weekend.

    There are no regulations on them here in Nevada, but they are not as wild as a Mourning Dove.They like trees and wires around houses and buildings.They breed like Pigeons which is many times a year.
    They are tasty.
