Dove Bird Species
More than 300 species of doves and pigeons (really the same type of bird, although the term pigeon generally denotes a larger bird) make up the avian family Columbidae in the order Columbiformes. These seed- or fruit-eating, large-bodied birds are often found in aviaries, but they can also make excellent pets. Two of the most common species, the ring-necked and diamond doves, come in a variety of mutations. You’ll find several bird clubs devoted just to doves, and other clubs – local, national and international – focus exclusively on racing or homing pigeons. .
