Collared Dove

You are alwys free to get rid of the extra bits which iSpot adds to an ID. The Eurasian tag is used to separate it from the African Collared Dove, I suppose, but since that is not seen here, we can happily revert to the good old simple name. The same goes for European Robin and so on...just delete the bit you don't want!

Alternately, stick to Streptopelia decaocto...then you can't go wrong.
