[quote=“windchime”]Tracking the dove… from Seal Cove to Westview, now points in between. Is this bird invasive? Should we be fearful? First, that fish in Burnaby Lake, now a dove, cooing all over town. What does this mean?
Really, will it displace other birds?[/quote]
They are Turtle Doves and actually are quite pretty ! They “play” well with others so I really don’t see the issue. I have seen them all over town since I moved here 13 years ago but below is a pic of a family of doves in my dads’ yard in Ontario in April. Same doves as are here.[/quote]
Those aren’t the ones making the noise. The video that Soggy posted was it. I’ve seen them in the trees over where I live, and in terrace. They’re light brown in color. Not saying we don’t have turtle doves, but those aren’t the ones we’re seeing. These ones have only been here a few years.
