Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

The largest and stockiest “ringneck” dove; it has a pale-fronted, pinkish head and a dark red eye surrounded by red skin. In flight, the dirty-brown tail tips distinguish it from other ringneck-doves. It is an abundant resident throughout urban, rural, and wild Africa. The Red-eyed Dove gives an insistent and characteristic six-note song: “I am a Red-eyed Dove”.
