The stock dove (columba oenas) is a bird in the columbidae family. It is very similar to the rock dove.

Description Edit

Stock doves are similar in plumage and size to rock doves/feral pigeons.They are largely blue-grey with an attractive iridescent bottle green band on the back of the neck. In flight they show black edges to the wing and two partial black bands near their back. Unlike rock doves/feral pigeons they do not have pale rumps.

Behavior Edit

The stock dove eats mainly seeds and vegetables and sometimes insects.

In the breeding season, they are found in parkland, along woodland edges, and by quarries and cliffs. In winter, there are small flocks feeding on farmland stubbles.
