      Do they appear similar to the ones on Africa? I really cannot tell

      I suppose they are similar to the Laughing Dove of Africa and the Middle East John. They are a separate species but are variations on the Streptopelia Dove theme.

      This dove is a real beauty and you've made such a great portrait, Steve!
      Well done, as always!
      It's rather similar to our Streptopelia turtur too.
