FOOD. It is based primarily on grains, which gets in his long walks on the floor.

NIDO. It is built mainly in spring and summer but you can find nests in the winter, less often. It is made of sticks on trees; is a rather precarious structure that puts 1 egg white. Both parents born pigeon feed it, for which one introduces the bill and head into the maw of the parents, from which it draws semidigerido food.

SITUATION. Abundant. Their populations are expanding because that agriculture has grown in large scale and this facilitates their food. It also benefits from the introduction of trees that provide nesting species.
