May 18, 2017

Location: Gulf Stream Shores

I'm a Eurasian Collared Dove,
My feathers are mostly tan and grey,
I have a black crescent on the nape of my neck,
And I eat mostly seeds and grains.

(Welcome to Tortugapalooza! I spent the last 4 days in Key West and the Dry Tortugas. For the next month,  my daily picture and poem will be birds and critters from that trip. Enjoy!)
