Eurasian Ring-necked Dove - Seen in my Longview, WA back yard.  I thought it was the Mourning Dove that had been visiting frequently, but he was missing the spots on his back and had a ring on the back of his neck.  Ring-necked Doves are not common in the Northwest.  One older Petersen Field guide called them Turtle Doves.  They make the sound "coo COO coo."

This is the Eastern Towhee and boy is it hard to get a good picture of this bird.  The Eastern Towhee likes to fly into thick bushes, quickly hop to the ground, spread its wings, and then walk backwards to stir up his dinner.  L. Marvel
