The Laughing Turtle-dove is one of a number of dove species found in Australia. It is distinguished easily by the spotted area on its front under its "chin" and the grey-black barred wings.

I never heard it laugh, though!

Hello Alan,
A beautiful dove which seems to like its plumage-colors to pose down..
Good focus on the eye of the bird. I would like to hear it laugh..
