“The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land” ( Song of Solomon 2:12)
The Ring-necked Dove (Streptopelia capicola), also known as the Cape Turtle Dove and the Half-Collared Dove, is a widespread and abundant bird in the bush, savannah, farmlands, and woodlands of southern and eastern Africa.
I took this shot in my garden in Gauteng, South Africa this morning.
