Whats the real reason for banding Eurasian collared dove? The TBBC is a research program to conduct a field study on this invasive species that has seemingly come to Texas in huge numbers and don't want to leave. We build a database centered on where they are trapped, banded and released compared to where they are found or harvested. We study the habitat in all three locations, we look at directional travel, age, and distance over time. The results have been very eyeopening and surprising as we enter the sixth year of this study. Your entry helps fund this effort to learn more about the habits of this invasive species to Texas.
Should you join the many hunters that have harvested an Eurasian Collared Dove with a TDH orange band you will win one of many great prizes, however, you must be entered to win!
