Spotted-necked Dove
Streptopelia chinensis


  Habitat: plains, scarce woods in mountain areas.
  Feeding habits: peck food on the ground with its bills.
  Food: seeds of crops and grasses, and some insects.
  Size: with a full body length of 32 cm; weight: 125-180 g.
  Habits: resident bird. Spotted-necked doves like to act in villages or fields. They produce their young from May to July each year. They build simple and flat nests with small twigs on the forks of trees and they can produce 2 eggs each time. After young birds are hatched, the parent birds can change the digested foods in their breasts into a special kind of dove milk to feed their young. Their voices of crying are varied. Normally we hear their voices like "gu, gu...". They sing the most frequently after sunshine of a long rain or when it's going to rain after a long sunshine.
