This pair of wild (Officially "Dark") ringneck doves have brown bodies and black flight feathers. "Wild" is a descriptive term. These doves were raised in captivity. Their heads and breasts are a pale lilac color (officially violet.) Their eyes are red and legs are almost purple. Their bills are black. Each has a black neck ring. These are very aggressive birds and should be isolated in a cage. In an aviary community, they will beat up on all of the other doves.
