This visitor from the Himalayan foothills was spotted near the Madai Gate of Satpura National Park, Madhya Pradesh, India.
Found only in the Indian SubContinent and South East Asia , it can be spotted throughout the country. It is another treasure of Incredible India.
The Spotted Dove or the Streptopelia chinensis is a gorgeous bird with a unique call that goes”croo cru cru“.
It can be mixed with the Turtle Oriental Dove which has similar spots, however the signature black and white spots on the neck set it apart.
Giving me the look from its perch.
