Madagascar Turtle-Dove

Streptopelia picturata (Temminck, 1813)

The Malagasy Turtle Dove (Nesoenas picturata), also known as the Malagasy Turtle-dove, is a bird species in the pigeon and dove family, Columbidae. It is found in British Indian Ocean Territory, Comoros, Madagascar, Mauritius, Mayotte, Réunion, and Seychelles. It has several subspecies. The Rodrigues Pigeon, an extinct but fairly enigmatic taxon from Rodrigues on the Mascarenes, was for some time suspeczed to be another subspecies of N. picturata, but today is generally considered a distinct species N. rodericana.
