The (Eurasian) Collared Dove is ubiquitous in Greece and now seemingly around the world in warm climates. You can recognize it by its black half collar and its 3 syllable coo which with a little imagination sounds (to us) like “Με Γάλα” (‘with milk’- when ordering coffee). You’ll see them perched usually in pairs or individually with a second dove nearby. Very elegant, slim and streamlined, but a bit noisy. All the time, ” Με Γάλα, Με Γάλα”.
