Bird was seen around 3:30 pm today on top of telephone pole on East side of Saniger in front of doublewide mobile with "Savages" on mailbox. The black half-collar on nape, red eye with blue eyering, no spots like a Morning Dove, gray undertail coverts, white undertail with black panels coming down the outside tail feathers are distinctive. It flushed into a large cottonwood between West St. and Dixon Lane. Good-luck.
