Spotted Dove

Every morning during my recent stay in India I woke up listening to these guys cooing all around - so pleasant to hear their Krookruk-krukroo... kroo kroo kroo calls in the morning. The juveniles do not develop their neck spots until they become adults. They are smaller and slimmer compared to the Eurasian Collared Dove. Santiniketan, West Bengal, India
