Lovely muted colours in the plumage. Doves seem to be very comfortable in the presence of humans.
This species is similar to Streptopelia decaocto, which occurs in Europe :-)Nice photos of beautiful pigeon.Greetings!
It is indeed closely related.
Well done with achieving such good photos. I find doves and pigeons challenging as they tend to constantly move their heads!
AHA!This one is quite familiar in France too!We call it the Turkish dove!On your pics I notice a lovely pinkish tinge on the neck and breast.
I believe you are referring to a different species, Noushka, Eurasian Collared Dove Streptopelia decaocto. See note above from Dzial.
