Despite its name, the African mourning dove (Streptopelia decipiens) is not a close relative of the North American mourning dove, Zenaida macroura. It is is distinguished by the brilliant red ring around its eyes. The African mourning dove is a widespread resident breeding bird in arid and semi-arid regions of Africa south of the Sahara.
