Birder Chris Takacs of Lyndhurst has issued an all-points-bulletin:
"Anyone birding the DeKorte area this weekend, please check those Doves you see around the park.
"Wednesday afternoon I saw a probable Eurasian Collared Dove sitting in my driveway. I'm only 2 houses from Schuyler Ave., I saw it briefly.
"The bird was longer, chunkier and lighter colored than the MODO's it was adjacent to. Although I've seen the bird 1000+ times, mostly in Florida, it caught me off guard and off course my camera was in my car.
"Checking NJ records, this could be a first Bergen County sighting and the first in NJ north of Sandy Hook."
