The Ringneck Dove, Ring Dove, or Barbary Dove, White Ringneck Dove, Streptopelia risoria, is a domestic member of the dove family (Columbidae). Ringneck Doves have been domesticated for 2000 to 3000 years. They are easily kept, and long-lived, in captivity, living for up to 12 years, and are noted for their gentle nature. Doves, usually white in color, are used in a variety of settings as symbols of love, peace or as messengers. According to the biblical story, a dove was released by Noah after the flood in order to find land; it came back carrying an olive leaf in its beak, telling Noah that, somewhere, there was land.
