I first saw this bird on June 13 @ 9:24 PDT and have seen it several times since in the general vicinity. [48.69701331N; 123.58852922W] which is near Cherry Point Park on Garnett Road near Cowichan Bay. I originally thought it was a Mourning Dove however I have compared it to my iBirds app and the closest match seems to be a Eurasian Collared-Dove.
My issue is that I don't see it on any of my SVI bird lists and the app shows it as being resident in the southern Gulf states.Eurasian Collared-Dove???

If anyone is able to confirm that it is or isn't a Eurasian Collared-Dove I would greatly appreciate it.
