Pigeons and Doves in Nepal

I saw four different pigeons out of 20 (!) mentioned in my field guide of Nepal. Too bad I didn’t see one of those very special green ones and the pictures I took are mostly blurry. But anyway I saw:

  • Oriental Turtle Dove – streptopelia orientalis – Orientturteltaube
  • Spotted Dove – streptopelia chinensis – Perlhalstaube
  • Eurasian Collard Dove – streptopelia  decaocto – Türkentaube
  • Rock Pigeon – columba livia – Felsentaube
