[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
Today I shot another species of Dove at the feeder we have on our house terrace. This one is called Spotted Dove. The other two species I captured at the same spot are Collared Dove and Laughing Dove.

The spotted dove (Spilopelia chinensis) is a small and somewhat long-tailed pigeon which is a common resident breeding bird across its native range on the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia. The species has been introduced into many parts of the world and feral populations have become established. This species was formerly included in the genus Streptopelia with other turtle-doves, but studies suggest that they differ from typical members of that genus. This dove is long tailed buff brown with a white-spotted black collar patch on the back and sides of the neck. The tail tips are white and the wing coverts have light buff spots. There are considerable plumage variations across populations within its wide range. The species is found in light forests and gardens as well as in urban areas. They fly from the ground with an explosive flutter and will sometimes glide down to a perch. It is sometimes also called the mountain dove, pearl-necked dove or lace-necked dove.

Hello Ram,
Your Spotted Dove is so much more intricately marked then our Mourning Doves here in Ohio. They are also quite loud and vocal. Nicely displayed showing excellent detail and beautiful colors. Good eye contact!!
