Eurasian Collared-Dove

Eurasian Collared-Dove (Streptopeleia decaocto)

Just who are these interlopers in my yard, and how did they get here?  Did they take a wrong turn like the Eurasian Teal we had this winter at the Tempe Marsh?  Actually I kinda like em'.  They look like they're ready for a formal event with their black collars, they are not bullies at the feeders, and they arrive in ones or twos - unlike their unruly white-winged cousins.
