      Looks very much like our Mourning Doves in color & markings, but I think not in size. It is strange that one Dove would be associated with happiness (laughing) and the other with sadness (mourning) isn't it?
      Lovely portrait, Sandeep -- and congratulations on a well deserved Explore pick!
