This is a "future" Collared Dove,a species of dove native to Asia and Europe, and also recently introduced in North America.
Collared Doves typically breed close to human habitation wherever food resources are abundant and there are trees for nesting; almost all nests are within a kilometer of inhabited buildings. It lays two white eggs in a stick nest, which are incubated by the female during the night and by the male during the day. Incubation lasts 14-18 days, and the young fledge after 15-19 days.

I like the tight crop, crisp detail, and point of view you've chosen here, Alin. Thanks for the interesting, informative note, too.


Hello Alin,
Excellent detail on the dove chick. The crop is almost too tight for me, but it really does fill the frame. Several years ago, we had a dove nest on a light fixture attached to the house. Two chicks were hatched and they were almost the size of the mother by the time they fledged.

Unde ai gasit minunatia aia de puisor?
Pare putin speriat:probabil era primul aparat Sony T300 pe care il vedea!

Hello Alin,
Very cute "light-feathered" little Collared Dove baby. Excellent sharpness of your shot. The bird didn't seem to be afraid. I just wonder where you have taken the picture, it seems to be in some house.
Kind regards

Hi Alin,

The tight frame is good for the composition. The close-up point of view is showing the details and colors of the baby Collared Dove. It is clear and sharp. The morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
