I made a thorough search of the Net and went back to the pet shop where I first saw the so-called Spanish doves. The doves known as Spanish doves in our pet market are the Eurasian collared doves, scientifically known as Streptopelia decaocto.
The dove in the picture I attached looks quite like the Eurasian collared dove but lacks the characteristic collar found in Streptopelia spp. The dove in the picture I attached looks like the mourning dove, scientifically known as Zenaida macroura.
