A small, mostly gray-brown “ringneck” dove with a gentle-looking dark eye that is not obviously surrounded by bare skin. It has a pale belly and shows broad white tips and sides to the tail in flight. It is an abundant resident in most habitats and its incessant, often-repeated three-note “work HAR-der, work HAR-der” songis a common and characteristic sound of Africa. Vinaceous Dove differs from the very similar Ring-necked Dove by having a pink crown and a distinctive, quickfire four-noted song.
