My 1000th observation posted to #iNaturalist!
Normally I have to take photos of doves with a zoom lens, but this one was just calmly sitting in a tree, making its "Ooh-Ooh" call. It didn't even fly off when I walked around the tree to get a better angle with my phone.
Most likely a Eurasian Collared Dove, one of several types I've seen around the Los Angeles area.
@KelsonV Congratulations! Glad you've enjoyed using iNat.
@sohkamyung Thanks! I've kind of slowed down a bit since I've identified all the weeds and butterflies and birds in this part of the city, so I have to go farther out to find something new. But I'm also still going through my backlog of old photos.
