Abstract

I report the presence of the Eurasian Collared-Dove (Streptopelia decaocto) in the state of Guerrero, Mexico. Also, I describe the sites where S. decaocto were recorded and their potential impacts on native birds are discussed. These records and others about this invasive species suggest its establishment and allow include it as part of the avifauna of Guerrero state.
