Northern Cardinal, Waterloo, ON Canada
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.
