The Ring Neck Dove is easily the most commonly kept dove in captivity. This domesticated bird (Streptopelia risoria) descends from the African Ring Dove (Streptopelia roseogrisea). This bird is about 12" from tail to head. The original wild coloring is quite beautiful as are the over forty acknowledged color mutations/combinations. The Wild colored bird has brown and grey feathers on the back and wings with a rich rose colored head and breast and a black neck ring. Other names include Collared Dove, Barbary Dove, or Domestic Ringed Dove. Range: Central and South Florida, Texas, New Mexico, and South California.
