Count the wildlife that's counting on you! Are you ready to take part in Big Garden Birdwatch?
Collared doves are a pale, pinky-brown grey colour, with a distinctive black neck collar (as the name suggests). They have deep red eyes and reddish feet. Their monotonous cooing will be a familiar sound to many of you. Although you'll often see them on their own or in pairs, flocks may form where there is a lot of food available.
What they eat:
Seeds, grains, buds and shoots.
