Doves are part of the pigeon family, Columbidae, that includes about 310 species. The origin of the name may come from its vocalisation. What we hear today as coo may well have been heard as doove in times past - hence the name dove. There is no strict division between pigeons and doves, which share certain features, including small, rounded heads, small, slim bills with a small fleshy patch at the base, rounded bodies with dense, soft feathers, tapered wings and short, scaly legs, and cooing or crooning calls.
