I counted 55 at the elevator in Cottonwood, Lyon County on Tuesday.  They
nested in our backyard this year.

Subject: [mou-net] Eurasian Collared-Doves-Swift Cty

Forgot to post this yesterday.  These are very common in this county but
Friday afternoon we found a flock of Eurasian Collared-Doves that numbered
in excess of 28.  They were in 2 trees that are next to the grain elevator
on Hwy 12 in Murdock.  Noticed them as we were driving by and by the time we
got stopped and counted them some had flown to the ground and we couldn't
see them so the count of 28 is low and there are more than that there.

This town has a large open grain storage area that makes it easy for doves
to feed.  We suspect that places like this all over Minnesota hold these
doves in the winter.  A couple of years ago we saw juvenile Eurasian
Collared-Doves in this town so they do stay and breed in these same places.
