Since 1982, the Eurasian Collared-Dove (abbreviated ECD) has been consistently noted throughout Florida. Hengeveld (1993) summarized the species’ rapid migration, colonization and nesting within the state. In the panhandle, Robertson and Woolfenden (1992) discovered a colony in Walton County on 6 December 1987 and McMillan (Duncan, pers. commun., 1996) confirmed nests and young on Santa Rosa Island (Escambia County). In 1993, Menart (pers. commun., 1995) reported nesting in his yard at Baypoint (Bay County).
