They started moving into Tex. a few years ago. My understanding is that they came from South America, then migrated west from Florida. I have friends in N. Mex. that say they they have made it into there area. Your the first one I have heard of seeing them that far north. I think there called collard doves if you want to check them out.

We have Collard doves here in Idaho, they are moved in a year or so ago and the numbers are booming, This was a mourning dove with an aluminum leg band?

Sorry! my bad, I have heard people call collard doves banded doves. I have hunted dove (mourning and white wing) all my life, cant say I have ever seen one with a leg band. Does it have any markings on it?

They do in CA. Exactly the same as a waterfowl band and you can get the certificate, too. Or print it off the site, anyway. Pretty cool looking. About the diameter of a drinking straw.

I helped band them here in NM too. Pretty much the same concept as the duck bands. They are being used to gather population and migration info. Congrats on getting one!
