Once upon a time (early 2001 to be exact), the very first Eurasian Collared-Doves to be found in Idaho showed up in a little place called Neely in American Falls. These birds have expanded rapidly across the country over the past decade and there are still several dozen of these birds in Neely. This morning I saw several in the trees there and then a couple Black-billed Magpies feasting on a dead dove in the snow. Wild, eh?
