A graceful, slender-tailed, small-headed dove that's common across the continent.

Mourning Doves perch on telephone wires and forage for seeds on the ground; their flight is fast and bullet straight. Their soft, drawn-out calls sound like laments. When taking off, their wings make a sharp whistling or whinnying.

At Bird Park Islamabad, you will be able to see their growth and true beauty in their natural environment and get to know up close how beautiful they are. We invite all of the birds lover to visit our bird aviary which is the third largest bird aviary in the world and see and enjoy it in its natural environment.
