Which Turtle-Dove? Iran, Khuzestan, Oct. 2023 (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hi all,
This one looked different from typical European Turtle-Doves I oserved before, so I thought it might be an Oriental.
Nice to have your ideas.
Fyi: The original shots were not in good light conditions, so I changed the shadow and exposure by LR.

Agree looks better for Oriental. did you see the colour of the outer tail feathers?
No, actually I was checking the area with binoculars and saw something moved on a cliff, so far from where I was standing, so I took these few shots, curious to find what was sitting there alone. It's Silhouette in camera lcd in extreme day light, was like collared dove which lots of them were present around.
I just found it's something different from collared ones, when I got back to the camp.
