APB on Eurasian Collared Dove


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."
