Birds at Airport Garden (2)

>> Aug 6, 2011

From a big glass window at the Soekarno Hatta airport (Jakarta, Indonesia), I also saw this bird. Indonesian people call it tekukur bird. The common names are Spotted Dove, Chinese Dove, Mountain Dove, or Lace-necked Dove.

The head and underparts are pinkish, shading to pale grey on face and lower tummy, the legs are red. There’s a black neck patch finely spotted with white. The voice is a low and gentle coo-coo-croo, with the emphasis on last note. The sound occasionally is “coo-coo krrroo, kroook!” I love their sound!

in Java there are still many who maintain bird terkuku because it has a distinctive voice.
