Laughing Dove

Post is part of the project- Birds in the neighborhood. | Bird 16

These clicks are taken from various locations from 100 feet to 200 feet from my home in Warora (Dist: Chandrapur).

Male and female look similar (but the female looks paler as per web resources). Distinctive checkered band on neck and upper part of breast helped me distinguish it from spotted dove. Greyish-blue shiny wings is also distinctive.
