Since you have already ‘spotted’the Spotted Turtle Dove,you must now look for a Partridge in a Pear Tree
(remember the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas”)
This time you must get both the bird AND the tree right!
No, it’s not a cape pigeon. But I googled “pigeon spotted neck” and found that the pigeon is called Spotted Neck Pigeon or Spotted Turtle Dove (Streptopelia chinensis)
To see a proper picture of the bird:
It could be a cape pigeon.Or why not just an ordinary pigeon?
