This is an exciting observation, because it is of an unusually large congregation of Eurasian Collared-doves. I estimate that there are close to 100 individuals present at this location. The birds were coming and going with regularity, so there may have been even more. Ordinarily, Eurasian Collared-doves are only seen in pairs. Before making this observation, I had never witnessed more than 4 together at a time.
