 You need to read: The Eurasian Collared Dove arrives in the Americas
 by P.W. Smith, 1987, American Birds: 41:1370-1379. This will give
 you much of what you need. Your article will lack completeness without
 your having read & referred to it. Take my word for it. The species is
 now one of the most common throughout South Florida & is common or it
 will be soon throughout the rest of the state.
