This dove was so quick I hardly got a chance to catch it on camera :)
ok! thx for this explanation :))
As far as I can see both have the markings but in yours can't see the real shape of it. But it doesn't matter because in Europe there are no other doves that look this similar to turtle dove so this is the only option. These are the only birds we have in Europe from genus: Streptopelia, http://carolinabirds.org/HTML/EU_Dove_Ol... Oh, and this one is a migratory birds so we have it here from spring till end of summer.
thx Faredin! the feathers look about right-what about the mark on a neck? p.s. I also love these birds :)
Nice one Ursula, I love these birds, brings good memories :)
