Hunting Mourning Dove


MOURNING DOVE (Streptopelia decipiens)

Key Characteristics

The black half-collar, white-bordered tail and distinctive red or pink skin around the eye are the main distinguishing characteristics of this dove.


Mourning Dove appear to prefer tall trees, especially in the Lowveld savanna regions along river courses, but have apparently adapted to some extent to large trees associated with gardens and farmyards.
