Hi Biswarup.
Your bird picture is very nice. Its attractive subject, delicate lights and colours, excellent composition create a pleasant impression. TFS and kind regards.

Hi Biswarup,
Just an ID correction. This is Streptopelia chinensis suratensis.

Hi Biswarup
Nice capture of the dove who seems to be deep in thought! By the way, we happen to have the same very uncommon name.

Hi Biswarup

This picture you have mentioned as laughing dove, is not a laughing dove it is a spotted dove. Laughing dove are totally pinkish in color without any spots. But this dove has spot near the neck so I am very much sure it is a spotted dove.
