Laughing Dove

The laughing dove, also known as the palm dove and Senegal dove, is a long-tailed pigeon 
that is brownish on its upper parts, has a bluish-gray band along the wing, has a chequered rufus and gray patch on the sides of its neck, red legs, and outer feathers that are tipped in white.
We found one in Jaffa, Israel, but it is also found in Lebanon, Syria, the UAE,Turkey, India, Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan, Saudi Arbaia, much of Sub-Saharan Africa and it has also been introduced to Western Australia.
