This video is about collared doves at a bird feeder in Sussex, England.
This morning, a collared dove landed on my balcony.
A change from more usual birds there, like jackdaws, great tits or wood pigeons.
A magpie landed next to the collared dove, which did not seem to be bothered by that.
However, when the other half of the magpie couple arrived, the collared dove flew away.
Collared Dove Streptopelia decaocto seems to adapt to urban areas in North Africa. Invasive species in full expansion, it develops anthropophilic behavior by building their nests in level of man-made structures. In Algeria, the original nesting behavior of this species could be related to the new architectural features of the buildings and the availability of food resources in this environment: here.
I’ve got to move my bird feeder from my back balcony yo my front balcony so I can see more of the birds 🙂
Or maybe a feeder at both balconies 🙂
That could work 🙂
I hope it will 🙂
