|Stock Dove Columba oenas|
|Monks Eleigh, Suffolk, England
The Stock Dove is distributed in much of Europe, western Asia and North Africa. The more northerly and easterly populations migrate south and west in the winter. See the distribution map at Birdlife International.
|Smaller than a Woodpigeon C. palumbus and about the
same size as a Rock Dove C. livia, it has small black spots on the wings, a green and purplish patch on the neck, a mauve-pink breast, a white
cere and a pink and yellow bill.
