|phylum||Chordata||The Turtle Dove is a migratory species with a southern Palearctic range, including Turkey and north Africa, although it is rare in northern Scandinavia and Russia. It winters in southern Africa. Smaller and slighter in build than many other doves, the European Turtle Dove may be recognised by its browner colour, and the black-and-white-striped patch on the side of its neck.
