Collard Dove (1 Viewer)


New member
Retired last year and moved here in November, happy for the pigeons to mess on my car every day but about two months ago a Collard Dove arrived on a branch in my neighbors tree near our bedroom window, so 4.45am every 30-40 seconds of insane monotonous call for about 3 hours, then off to bother someone else, now it is coming back during the day and early evenings as well. This is not some days, this is every single day. I have scared it off a few times with an UNLOADED air gun and it now sits around the other side of the tree so I cannot see it. Stress levels are high anyway now but I think I am ready for a second stroke ;)
