Τρυγόνι - Turtle Dove

Καλοκαιρινός επισκέπτης στην Ελλάδα.Χαρακτηριστική η φωνή του , "τουρ,τουρ". Έτσι στα Γρεβενά το αποκαλούν "τουρτούρα".

Summer visitor in Greece. Its voice ,"tour,tour" is charachteristic.Its sience name , Streptopelia turtur ,derives from that, or?

Odysea, sorry to correct you, but the latin name for the Turtle Dove is actually Streptopelia turtur, not decaocto. Streptopelio decaocto is the name for the "Decaoctura", the Collared Dove.
