Spotted Dove

Sitting pretty on my parapet

These  elegant and urbanized birds are my companions on my terrace. I can spend time watching them…their soft cooing, cuddling together, drinking water that I have provided and foraging on the ground for seeds or fallen fruits.

Spotted dove (Spilopelia chinensis) is a small and long-tailed pigeon, which is a common  bird across its native range on the Indian Subcontinent.

They move around in pairs.Their flight is quick with regular beats and an occasional sharp flick of the wings. Nests are built with small twigs and are placed in the niches of the roof.

All these pictures are captured on my terrace.
