Ringneck Dove Behavior
Date: Saturday, August 31, 2002
I have a ringneck female dove and she laughs and makes
other funny noises besides cooing I was just wondering why they do that
and do they like to be covered when they sleep?
Most bird species have what is termed a "call" and a "song" in their
vocalizations. Ringneck doves have both. The coos are the song which
are most often associated with reproduction behaviors, and this species
has a number of vocalizations that they exhibit that would be described
as calls. Calls seem to be interspecies communications.
