Day 167

A new import to the Barrow Backyard Bird Sanctuary:  a Eurasian Collared-Dove.


They are a recent arrival from the Caribbean, and closely related to the Spotted Doves we saw in Hawai’i. This is the northwestern end of their new range.


Handheld with my 400mm lens, 1/1500 second, ISO 200 and f5.6.  In less than ideal light.  I had to shrink the photos by more than two thirds just to fit them on the screen!
