It's a bit far away

Could be a Collard Dove, but it is really too far away to be sure. Collard Doves are frequent visitors to our garden, they seem to like pine trees. I am not sure just when we spotted the first, but 10 years ago we saw none.

Collared dove

They're actually surprisingly recent colonists, first arriving in the early 1950s. Now common across most of the country.
